What’s new for 2017
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.
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.
* Hypo Hub is non-promotional and has been organised in conjunction with Novo Nordisk.
DPC Foot & Wound Clinic
We have listened to our visitors and this year are excited to be launching a brand new and dedicated feature area focused on delivering the latest information and practical skills to help patients look after their feet and lower limbs. The DPC Foot & Wound Clinic will provide a 2-day, CPD-accredited programme surrounding diabetic foot and wound care. In conjunction with a highly experienced clinical podiatry team, the DPC Foot & Wound Clinic programme will provide a range of sessions which will deliver skills for varying levels of experience and specialism. Every session will involve hands-on, practical, take-away learning for our visitors with specially produced resources and self-assessment checklists for visitors and their teams.
