Healthcare professionals involved in diabetic eye screening are invited to attend a conference dedicated to the subject in April. 

The annual diabetic eye screening conference will take place on Friday, April 8, 2022, between 9am and 4pm at the Royal Society of Medicine’s headquarters in London.

Entitled ‘The good, the bad and the ugly’, the event will provide insight into current and future changes within diabetic eye screening.

A series of high-profile speakers will be hosting sessions on best-shared practices and key updates surrounding diabetic eyecare, including Professor Jonathan Valabhji, National Clinical Director for Diabetes and Obesity for NHS England, and Miss Helen Cook, Consultant Ophthalmologist and Clinical Lead at Hull University Teaching Hosptials NHS Trust.

During this meeting, delegates will:

  • Achieve better uptake engagement and understanding about the psychosocial aspects of diabetes in reaching our most challenging populations.
  • Identify gaps in knowledge and develop areas for growth.
  • Develop new skills or increased expertise in the management of an individual with diabetic eye disease.

At the end of each session, attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions to the speakers.

The conference will also be available to watch on-demand for up to 60 days after the event, organisers have said.

In addition, they have announced that 20 bursary spaces are available for this meeting, with 10 student and 10 trainee places up for grabs.

The national diabetic eye screening programme is hosted by the Royal Society of Medicine, which is devoted to providing better healthcare in the UK.
