Entitled ‘Diabetes and Frailty’, the workshop will explore ways frailty can be incorporated into routine care and increase awareness on the management of diabetes in relation to frailty or vice versa.

Additionally, the webinar will discuss what interventions can be offered and educate attendees on the what frailty looks like, how it presents and how it is measured.

Hosted by the Diabetes Inpatient Specialist Nurse UK group (DISN UK), the free-to-attend workshop will be held on Tuesday, November 16, between 1pm and 3pm.

Jackie McNicholas, Renal Frailty CNS at Imperial College Health NHS Trust will share her expertise on frailty at the webinar.
