Description

Headline description

London Clinical Networks and Diabetes UK, in partnership with Kidney Care UK, Kidney Research UK and NHS London Specialised Commissioning, are holding a diabetes and kidney disease conference. The key aims of the event is to educate a wide range of healthcare professionals about diabetic kidney disease and to issue a call to arms for greater prioritisation on prevention as a means of reducing the risk or delaying the onset of chronic kidney problems.

This event will reflect on the current position of Renal and Diabetes in the capital, profiling the current levels of prevalence and opportunities to meet unmet need. It will promote good practice in terms of prevention, early diagnosis and proactive management of the condition that will interest a wide range of professionals working in multidisciplinary teams and the emergent primary and community care provider networks.

Appropriate weighting will be given to inspiring clinicians across the whole of London to take immediate practical action in their geographies. The event will also take a forward look to the future to understand what technologies might be available to support time-pressured professionals to better detect and prevent kidney disease in the diabetes population.

Objectives

1. To improve professional understanding of the case for change and the need to prioritise action on prevention to reduce the risk and incidence of renal dysfunction, renal failure and to prevent or delay renal dialysis

2. To increase professional awareness of good kidney health, the risk of complications and provide participants with information to support conversations with people with lived experience of diabetes

3. To create greater understanding of optimal care interventions and good practice to support improved outcomes across the whole care pathway

4. To gain consensus on what needs to happen to achieve improved population outcomes for people living with diabetes across the renal pathway

This event is open to all professionals working in the diabetes and renal pathways or across both.

Please note: This is strictly one person per registration. We aim to get a balanced delegate representation at this event from a wide-range of professional roles, organisation and geographical boundaries. We reserve the right to ask organisations to re-prioritise its representation if we feel there is an imbalance. We will contact you direct if this is the case.
