Why I no longer attend my child's diabetes appointments

16 Nov 2023
Keynote Theatre

I have been supporting my daughter with type 1 diabetes for nearly 6 years and dread our clinic appointments so much I no longer attend. My husband takes my daughter instead.

In this session, I will be sharing my experiences of why I do not attend clinic appointments (unless I absolutely have to) and also ask for some help on how to improve clinic appointments moving forward.

This session will:

  • Highlight the importance of language
  • Help you to understand what it can be like for a parent walking into an MDT
  • Provide 3 suggestions to enhance your carer interactions
