DPC2018 conference streams announced
Diabetes Professional Care 2018, the fourth annual edition of DPC, will return to London on 14 and 15 November this year.
Still free to attend for healthcare professionals, DPC2018 will again feature at its core a CPD-accredited, eight-stream conference where top practitioners, thought leaders and policy makers from across the diabetes arena will share their learning and expertise.
We are putting together our DPC2018 conference programme with the support of our partners and key industry players, and look forward to sharing news about speakers and content very soon.
However, we can give you a sneak peek at this year’s conference streams, which reflect the most important areas and pressing issues in diabetes healthcare.
The eight streams are:
- Diabetes in Primary, Community & Specialist Care
- Obesity in Practice & Diabetes Prevention
- Diabetes Co-Morbidities
- Commissioning for Better Diabetes Care
- Diabetes Technologies
- Type 1 Diabetes
- Paediatric to Adolescent & Crossover Care
- FIT & Trend-UK Theatre
To address the vital requirement for better information and education on diabetes co-morbidities, this stream has been extended this year to both days of the show, with a dedicated focus on mental health, renal & diabetic kidney disease, cardiovascular disease and diabetic retinopathy.
“The growth in support for DPC [DPC2017 attracted a record 3,235 visitors] and diversity of visitors reflects the clear desire for easily accessible, better education and training for all professionals involved in the care of people with diabetes,” says Maggie Meer, Founder, Diabetes Professional Care.
“The very high calibre of speakers we attracted to last year’s event shows the great regard in which DPC is held, and we look forward to another world-class line up for DPC2018.”
