Leading consultants lined up to present at DPC 2018

World-class thought leaders and top diabetes practitioners will lead the agenda of the Diabetes Professional Care (DPC 2018) conference.
DPC 2018, one of the UK’s biggest healthcare conference for those working in the field of diabetes, is an annual event for doctors, nurses, dieticians, pharmacists and researchers.
Last year at DPC2017, Diabetes.co.uk reported live updates from the two-day event and also promoted the benefits of our award-winning Low Carb Program. We are delighted to be attending this year’s event too.
NHS England’s national clinical director for obesity Professor Jonathan Valabhji tops the programme and will present a keynote speech giving attendees an update about the health service’s current priorities and transformation funds.
Dr Partha Kar, the associate national clinical director for diabetes, also with NHS England will too speak at the event.
There will also be talks about the role of oral medications in diabetes treatment, life hacks about how to improve the lives of people with diabetes and suggestions about individualising diabetes care.
Additionally, delegates can attend a series of interactive, informal workshops, allowing further discussions about various areas to take place. The sessions also allow participants to examine a particular issue more closely, while sharing real-life experiences and talking about practical solutions.
Maggie Meer, founder of the event, said: “This year, we’ve extended the diabetes co-morbidities stream to both days of the show, to address the need for better awareness and training on the serious complications of diabetes. These sessions include a dedicated focus on mental health and wellbeing, renal and diabetic kidney disease, cardiovascular disease and diabetic retinopathy.
“We are also introducing DPC Toolkits at a number of sessions, to provide ongoing support for healthcare professionals.”
Now in its fourth year, DPC is the UK’s only free CPD-accredited diabetes conference for healthcare professionals. It is set to take place on 14 and 15 November at Olympia, London.
