Organisers of the UK’s leading conference for healthcare professionals working in diabetes update us on exciting plans for the 2020 conference.

Diabetes Professional Care (DPC2020) is returning to its regular November slot, taking place on 11 and 12, with an action-packed agenda in store. The first draft of the programme is also close to being completed.

DPC Event Director Toby Baker said: ” Now in its sixth year, DPC has fast become UK’s biggest national free-to-attend, CPD-accredited conference. Our main aim for the two-day show is to bring together the entire diabetes multidisciplinary (MDT) team to encourage and support joint and integrated working for better care delivery across all therapy areas.

“DPC2020 has, and always will be, a free show, so we urge people to continue registering for the show to ensure their place is held. ”

This year organisers have brought together a task force of “elite professionals” who have been working with the DPC team to create a high-quality programme with something for every area of diabetes care, encompassing full MDT representation.

The DPC Steering Group are made up of the most experienced and knowledgeable people in diabetes care to further help DPC deliver real-world learning and practical skills development.

In addition, there will be a huge focus on preventing and managing type 2 diabetes via the Obesity and Weight Management stream. Innovative interventions, debates, expert speakers and updates from the NHS Obesity Team will also form part of the stream which will play a key part in the programme at the two-day CPD-accredited show in November. The stream, expected to be hugely popular with attendees, will be complemented with the return of the Nutrition & Lifestyle Clinic.

The team is introducing the DSN Theatre, which will be solely for Diabetes Specialist Nurses across the two-days, hosting a series of education panel sessions and skills workshops.

There will also be a dedicated Diabetes Doctor Theatre, only accessible to Diabetes Specialist Consultants, Diabetologists, D&E Consultants, Diabetes Registrars, and GPwsi Diabetes. A compelling programme of speakers and educational content based on the feedback received from visitors last year will be unveiled in due course.

DPC continues to go from strength to strength since launching in 2015 and last year welcomed 5,300 delegates through the doors thanks to our successful blend of high-quality speakers, the latest information and research and specialist clinics, with a multi-disciplinary team focus.
