A diabetes study day for healthcare professionals working within a hospital or community setting to help them develop their understanding of the condition has been announced.

The CPD accredited 2nd Bedford Diabetes Study Day will take place on Thursday, January 18,  2018 and has been approved by the Federation of the Royal Colleges of Physicians.

The programme has been unveiled and includes a workshop focusing on patient empowerment in the management of diabetes in a bid to help delegates develop their communication and empowerment skills. The workshop will be delivered by Dr Charles Fox, a retired consultant physician from Northampton General Hospital and Dr Anne Kilvert, lead for community diabetes and consultant physician from Northampton General Hospital who have both done immense work in this area.

There will also be talks about new development in diabetes management, management of obesity in diabetes, bariatric surgery and advances in the understanding of diabetic retinopathy.

Organiser Dr Rajeev Kumar, consultant physician and clinical director (integrated medicine) at Bedford Hospital, said: “This is the second study day we’ve held, the first one was in June 2017 and was a resounding success with about 75 delegates attending and lots of  excellent feedback.

“We believe this study day will be suitable for medical and nursing staff at all levels. This is purely an educational activity with no commercial gain and we hope will help all those who attend develop a deeper understanding of the condition. We welcome all parties who are interested in attending with open arms.”

Registration is required beforehand and attendance costs £60 per delegate, which includes lunch and refreshments. Please note that places are limited and are offered on a first come, first served basis.
