Diabetes Professional Care 2019
Diabetes Professional Care 2019 (DPC2019) will once again return to Olympia, London but this year it will be even more bigger and better.
Now in its fifth year, the UK’s biggest national free-to-attend, CPD-accredited conference and exhibition for those within the diabetes field, is moving to a larger hall.
This is to ensure all healthcare professionals (HCPs) involved in the prevention, treatment and management of diabetes and its related conditions can attend the two-day show on Tuesday, October 29 and Wednesday, October 30, 2019.
DPC2019 is set to attract thousands of healthcare professionals from across the diabetes arena once again, providing them with the unique opportunity to share experiences, gain real-world learning from top practitioners and meet those shaping the future of diabetes care, all in one place.

Who is it for?
At the heart of DPC2019, our multi-stream conference will bring together world-class practitioners and thought leaders to share their expertise and knowledge on diabetes care and best practice.
What is the aim of DPC?
From the beginning, DPC’s key objective has been to improve the lives of people with diabetes by helping healthcare professionals to understand and empathise with their patients, and increase their awareness of diabetes complications.
As well as arming them with the skills and knowledge to provide better care for their patients, DPC’s focus is on helping them to empower their patients to manage their own condition.

DPC Question Time
Topical healthcare debates involving key players from the world of diabetes are set to take place during the very first DPC Question Time.
The panel will include key diabetes policy makers and opinion leaders from NHS England, Getting it Right the First Time (GIRFT), Diabetes Research and Wellness Foundation (DRWF) and the Healthier You: NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme (NDPP).
The format, based on the popular BBC political programme, has been created to give healthcare professionals the opportunity to pose relevant and important questions to the individuals and organisations responsible for leading the way in improving outcomes and the lives people who live with diabetes.
The official DPC2019 event app is now available for registered attendees to download now.
Users will now be able to search for sessions by subject or level of specialism and make a personalised schedule for both days – making it the easiest way to plan your day and select the sessions that are right for you in your role.
DPC2019 will run a series of interactive, informal workshops alongside its conference programme to open up discussion and allow participants to examine more closely a particular issue, while sharing real-life experiences and discussing practical solutions.
Sessions will be presented by HCPs and companies working at the sharp end of diabetes prevention, treatment and management.
