Diabetes Professional Care has become a major annual event for healthcare professionals involved in the prevention, treatment and management of diabetes, and its related conditions.

Now in its fourth year, this year’s show will again feature at its core a comprehensive, eight-stream conference, where our world-class speakers will deliver a diverse programme of CPD-accredited content.

“All DPC2018’s sessions reflect our continued commitment to improving the care of people with diabetes,” says Maggie Meer, Founder, DPC. “Our programme focuses strongly on developing practical skills and real-world learning for HCPs at all levels – from GPs and nurses in primary care, through to diabetes specialist nurses and consultants, up to commissioners and CCG board members.

“We have also listened to our visitors and industry partners, and introduced content to address their most pressing concerns.”

The full DPC2018 conference programme will be published on the DPC website later next month, but we can share a few session and speaker highlights with you now:
