Friday 16 March 2018
New for 2018, our 'essentials' course is aimed at primary care healthcare professionals who would like to develop the skills needed to support patients with diabetes. This one-day course is designed around our Information Prescriptions and aims to increase your knowledge, awareness and confidence in treating patients with diabetes.
What's on the agenda?
Co-chaired by Paul Newman (GPwSI, Glasgow) and Nicola Milne (Practice Nurse, Manchester) the Primary Care Course will look at six essential areas of diabetes management in a primary care setting:
HbA1c: Translating guidelines into practice
Paul Newman and Su Down, Nurse Consultant
Blood pressure and lipids: can we do better?
Naresh Kanumilli, GPwSI and Kevin Fernando, GPwSI
Chronic kidney disease: Keeping kidneys healthy
Pam Brown, GPwSI and Jane Diggle, Practice Nurse
Contraception and pregnancy: Are we talking about the birds and bees?
Su Down and Nicola Milne
Feet: Keeping feet healthy
David Millar Jones, GPwSI and Nicola Milne
Mood: Living with diabetes and managing emotional distress
Debbie Cook, Nurse Consultant
How much does it cost?
The cost of attending is £25 (+VAT). This cost has been heavily subsidised by Diabetes UK so that those working in primary care teams can afford to attend.
For £25 you will receive:
- Access to the course.
- Lunch and refreshments.
- Networking opportunities with primary care colleagues from across the UK.
- Access to the Exhibition hall of the Diabetes UK Professional Conference, where you can meet pharmaceutical companies, technology companies, care providers and many more.
- Access to the poster area of the Diabetes UK Professional Conference, where you can view abstracts presented by colleagues and peers.
- A certificate of attendance* and a booklet for you to complete your reflective practice.
*To receive the certificate of attendance you will be required to attend every session during the day.
Is this part of the Diabetes UK Professional Conference?
No, this course is run separately to the Diabetes UK Professional Conference but as it is in the same place (ExCeL) and at the same time (16 March 2018), you will benefit from being able to share the networking opportunities that the Diabetes UK Professional Conference has to offer. However, you won’t be able to attend any of the conference sessions.
