Event description

Description

Diabetes UK and the West Midlands CVD Clinical Network, NHS England are hosting a diabetes self-management education event for commissioners, health care professionals and patients in the West Midlands. Diabetes self-management education helps people to stay healthy and prevent costly complications, yet very few people with diabetes have attended a course. This event will explore the following topics:

  • Convincing decision makers to pay for diabetes education
  • Extending the reach and getting people to attend
  • Providing alternative options for people who are unable to attend a course
  • Reaching rural areas and large diverse populations
  • Resources to support you in your local area
  • Treatment and Care Transformation Fund: challenges, ideas and innovations

The event is taking place at De Vere Hotel: https://www.phcompany.com/de-vere/colmore-gate/ there is limited parking at this venue, therefore we encourage delegates to travel by public transport if possible. De Vere is situated in central Birmingham and is walking distance from all Birmingham train and metro stations.

Please contact Katy Cook at Diabetes UK (katy.cook@diabetes.org.uk) or Alice Twitchin at NHS England (alice.twitchin@nhs.net) if you have any questions about this event. If you have received an invitation to this event and you are not based within the West Midlands, please contact either Katy or Alice who will be able to discuss options to attend or receive information from the event.
