Hypo Hub*

We have joined forces this year with our Diamond Sponsor, Novo Nordisk, to bring you a special feature area, Hypo Hub, as part of Novo Nordisk's Changing Diabetes aspiration. Through a 2 day programme of workshops we will be giving visitors a unique insight into what hypoglycaemia is, how it can impact the lives of patients living with diabetes, the duty of care implications for healthcare professionals and the financial impact that hypoglycaemia can have for the NHS and society as a whole.

What's on?
Four individual workshops each day, two of which will be repeated, to enable as many visitors as possible to benefit from these thought provoking sessions.

Ever had a Hypo?
We will have hypoglycaemia simulation equipment in the Hypo Hub! Come and experience what it feels like for your patients when their blood sugar level drops too low.

Will they be CPD Accredited?
Yes, you will gain CPD Points from attending.

    Patient perspective

    Learning outcomes:

    • Understand the impact of hypos on the individual, and benefit from hearing from the patient perspective
    • Realise the impact hypos have on family members
    • Understand the wider implications hypos can have


    Dr Nicole Braham, Diabetes Specialist, Whittington Hospital

    Nicole has worked at the WHITTINGTON since 2005 as an Associate Specialist working with both type 1 and type 2 patients providing on going care. She has a particular interest in hypoglycaemia and has given many talks around the world about living with the effects of frequent hypos.and changes to insulin regimes, which can help minimise their occurrence.

    Nicole has also published papers in conjunction with Professor Malone Lee at University College investigating urinary tract infections in diabetic patients in which they were able to demonstrate that they often go unrecognised, and furthermore, there are different causative organisms.

    Nicole is on the north London advisory board for Novo.

    Hypos in vulnerable populations/older populations


    Pat Clarke, Diabetes Nurse Specialist, Queen’s Medical Centre, Nottingham

    Pat started working as a Diabetes Nurse Specialist in Nottingham in 1978 and during that time has seen many advances in the care of people with diabetes with new insulin equipment to measure blood glucose and to deliver insulin. She has always been committed to education of both people with diabetes and the professionals looking after them.

    In 2009 she retired and started working in Primary Care with Nottingham West CCG supporting 12 practices. Patients were discharged from secondary care to be looked after in the Community by the GP and practice nurse supported by Pat, also supported by a Consultant in Secondary Care.

    Speaker to be announced



    Definitions, reporting and the cost of Hypoglycaemia

    Learning outcomes:

    • Definitions and classifications of hypos
    • Clinical scenarios and discussion
    • Reporting/underreporting of hypos
    • How hypos affect local budgets, and why proper glycaemic management is good for the top line
    • The patient benefit of glycaemic stability

    Dr Pratik Choudhary, Senior Lecturer and Consultant in Diabetes, Kings College London

    Pratik is Senior Lecturer and Consultant in Diabetes at King’s College London. After starting his research career with Prof Simon Heller in Sheffield using CGM to evaluate risks of hypoglycemia in patients, he moved to Kings college London where he has been involved in research around mechanisms of hypoglycaemia unawareness using neuroimaging. He has also worked with the DAFNE and HARPdoc programs investigating educational and technological interventions to restore awareness.

    His clinical work revolves around better management of type 1 diabetes, working in a large multidisciplinary intensive type 1 management service incorporating educational, psychological and technological advances into day-to-day clinical management.

    Pratik is also diabetes lead for islet and pancreas transplantation at King’s and Guy’s and is working on new ways of delivering islets to patients without immunosuppression.

    He is also associate editor for diabetic medicine.

    The impact of using Flash glucose monitoring to reduce hypoglycaemia

    This presentation will look at how flash glucose monitoring has helped patients achieve better outcomes, investigating how flash increases patient’s frequency to checking their glucose – 3x more than the minimum recommended European Guidelines.  Real-world data shows significantly decreased eHbA1c with increased frequency of monitoring and significantly less time spent in hypoglycaemia.  This insight is supported by the clinical RCTS; IMPACT and REPLACE, which also showed that by using Flash glucose monitoring system reduced the time in hypo, reduced the number of serious hypos and also reduced nocturnal hypos.  Users achieved this reduction in hypoglycaemia quickly, and sustained it without increasing HbA1c.

    Learning outcomes:

    • How your patients can predict a hypo
    • Understand the association between increased scanning and a reduction in eHbA1c
    • The outcomes of IMPACT and REPLACE and the direct impact Flash glucose monitoring has on hypoglycaemia
    • Reducing the frequency of hypoglycaemia and time spent in hypoglycaemia
    • Looking at patient case studies to identify variability and hypoglycaemia

    • Understanding that there is currently a gap in how HCPs discuss and record hypos with their patients
    • Understand how the toolkit can help HCPs coach patients around hypos and determine if patients need a further consultation
    • Learn how pilot sites using the toolkit have benefitted from the toolkit, and how it has been adapted along the way (quotes and feedback)
    • To obtain visibility of future plans to link up outcomes data with ambulance service records


    Tony Jamieson, Clinical Lead for Medicines; Y&H Academic Health Science Network, Improvement Academy

    Tony’s career started in community pharmacy in Warrington. In 1997 he took up a post as a Health Authority prescribing adviser in North Cheshire to influence the quality of prescribing. He continued his career in this sector working for Primary Care Organisations in North Cheshire and West Yorkshire working in service design and commissioning. Tony has specialised in medicines safety supporting social services, community services, pharmacy and general practice to implement safer medicines systems. Tony’s work in NHS England focused on protecting patients from harm by managing safety and practitioner performance, in particular around the use of controlled drugs and substance misuse.

    Tony’s career has focussed on protecting patients from harm. Optimising the use of Medicines achieves this by preventing deterioration in morbidity and by reducing the incidence of avoidable adverse drug reactions. In 2013 Tony took up the role of Clinical Lead for medicines in the Yorkshire and Humber Academic Health Science Network to advance these ideas. In this role he builds the sciences of Quality Improvement, Human Factors and Behaviour Change into the adoption of innovative, patient-led clinical care.


    The cost of hypos: the impact on your top line

    Learning outcomes:

    • How hypos affect local budgets, and why proper glycaemic management is good for the top line
    • Understanding that the cost of preventing hypos is far less than the cost of treating them, relieving the burden on the NHS
    • The patient benefit of glycaemic stability

    Marc Evans, Consultant Diabetologist

    Marc Evans has been a Consultant Diabetologist at Llandough Hospital and the University Hospital of Wales since the beginning of 2003. He was previously a Lecturer in Diabetes and Endocrinology at the University of Wales College of Medicine. Dr Evans has multiple ongoing academic and clinical interests, including the health economics of diabetes care and health outcomes in people with type 2 diabetes. He has published over 200 articles, book chapters and abstracts and is currently editor in chief of Diabetes Therapy.
