The official programme for next month’s DPC show has unveiled Professors Jonathan Valabhji and Partha Kar are set to play a staring role at the virtual event.

Together, they will provide an update on the Healthier You: The NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme, which has been adapted into a virtual service so people can continue with their progress remotely.

This event, which promises to be a world-class online experience, has been developed as part of DPC’s commitment to MDT working, providing free education and sharing good practice to all healthcare professionals working within the field of diabetes Maggie Meer

Consultant Pharmacist in Diabetes and Endocrinology Philip Newland-Jones will lead a talk about how COVID-19 has redefined the role of nurses with Bethany Kell, Debbie Hicks and Lesley Mills, key members of the nursing community.

A panel comprised of Professor Mike Edmunds, Graham Bowen, clinical lead for podiatry at Solent NHS Trust, Charles Odiase, an experienced advanced clinical pharmacist with a special interest in diabetes and obesity management and Dr Patrick Holmes will come together to discuss how an MDT approach to diabetes footcare could significantly improve outcomes.

CPD accredited

Another highlight will see Dr Mark Davies discuss how the EASD Guidelines can be put into practice, helping to put the person with diabetes at the centre of their care.

The event will still be free-to-attend and CPD-accredited for healthcare professionals who deliver care and support to people living with, or at risk of developing diabetes and its related conditions.

Those who register will also be able to meet online with friends and colleagues and take advantage of the interactive virtual exhibition, the engaging agenda and hear some of the world’s leading diabetes experts speak about their specialist areas.

There will also be an event host, virtual networking and symposiums as part of the action-packed agenda.

DPC Founder Maggie Meer said: “We have gone above and beyond to ensure DPC2020 is so much more than a series of online webinars and we have fully incorporated compelling content which will be wrapped up in the most innovative virtual format there currently is.

“This event, which promises to be a world-class online experience, has been developed as part of DPC’s commitment to MDT working, providing free education and sharing good practice to all healthcare professionals working within the field of diabetes.”

Experience and specialisms

DPC2020 Virtual will Run on the 11, 12 and 13 November with each day’s programme starting from 830am to 2pm and then in the evening sessions will start back up again from 630pm to 830pm.

The three days are open for all healthcare professionals and will be suitable for all levels of experience and specialisms – from policy-level through to senior clinicians, primary care, community care and those that have just started their careers in relation to diabetes.

DPC is also really excited to have teamed up with the DRWF to run a patient education and information virtual event on Saturday, November 14 which healthcare professionals are also welcome to attend.

United through Diabetes will be a unique, virtual experience for people living with diabetes, to help them discover the very latest information about their condition and hear from the leading healthcare professionals from within the field.
