Registration for the UK’s leading conference for healthcare professionals has been opened.

The 2017 Diabetes Professional Care Conference (DPC) attracted a record 3,235 delegates in November and now people can secure their place at this year’s event. It will take place at Olympia London on November 14 and 15.

DPC 2018 promises to be our biggest and best show yet.  If you’re a professional responsible for delivering diabetes care pathways at any level, it is the one event you can’t afford to miss, founder Maggie Meer

The free-to-attend, CPD-accredited event is for healthcare professionals (HCP) involved in the prevention, treatment and management of diabetes, and its related conditions.

Launched in 2015, DPC aims to improve the lives of people with diabetes by arming HPCs with the skills and knowledge to provide better care for their patients, and helping them to empower their patients to manage their condition.

Founder Maggie Meer said: “DPC meets a real and increasing need among HCPs for accessible education – as shown by DPC2017’s record attendance of 3,235 visitors.

“DPC2018 promises to be our biggest and best show yet. If you’re a professional responsible for delivering diabetes care pathways at any level, it is the one event you can’t afford to miss.

“It provides a unique opportunity for healthcare professionals from across the diabetes arena to come together to share experiences, gain real-world learning from top practitioners and meet those shaping the future of diabetes care, all in one place.

“Register now to attend DPC2018 – and take a vital step towards gaining new skills and expertise you can take away and use straight away in the care of your patients with diabetes.”
