Generous bursary means nurses can travel to DPC2019 for free

Nurses who wish to attend Diabetes Professional Care (DPC2019) have been given an opportunity to apply for a Travel Bursary.

The grant has been donated by James Potter and his organisation Rokstone so that nurses from around the UK can travel to DPC2019 completely free of charge.

The bursary is open to anyone working within the nursing community who has an interest in diabetes.

James said: “As someone who has lived with type one diabetes for over 26 years, I have experienced first-hand how vital it is that nurses on the front-line of care have the practical skills and knowledge to support people with diabetes, and identify risk early.

“I was inspired by Maggie’s [DPC Founder] passion for arming healthcare professionals with accessible education and hope that this bursary will enable more people from the around the UK to attend this free, CPD-accredited conference so that people like me will benefit from their learning.”

Maggie Meer added: “We are really excited that we have a Travel Bursary for Nurses for DPC2019. Our grateful thanks go to James Potter, who has kindly made a substantial donation, which will enable us to offer you to travel to DPC2019 completely free of charge.

“We understand that it is difficult to find the time and budget to access CPD-accredited education and develop the clinical skills that you need in your role, but now James has helped make it that little bit easier for nurses to attend. The bursary is open to diabetes specialist nurses, practice nurses, registered general nurses and ward sisters.”
