About | Diabetes on the Net

Diabetes on the Net is intended for healthcare professionals

‘At the 4-Front’ is a forum for senior diabetes nurses to share expertise and experience in a way designed to enhance not only their own practice but also that of other nurses around them

Now in its 12th year and led by a Faculty of five experienced nurses, 4-Front stages hugely successful participative events –
virtual and face-to-face – as well as providing unique information and resources to its membership. While it currently has
nearly 200 registered members, it is keen to welcome new entrants both to its main Nurse Leaders group and to its Academy.

‘Experienced, well-respected senior diabetes nurses who are innovative and an inspiration and motivation to others. They have a vision to transform the boundaries of diabetes care and have an impact on diabetes services. Through evaluation and clinical expertise they continually develop services. They can see what is happening and what needs to happen, and then, through inspiring others, make it happen.’

Join the 4-Front Academy

The 4-Front Academy is aimed at diabetes nurses who, while they may not yet fulfil the above description, they aspire to do so in the future. Academy nurses are offered specific training on clinical, management and academic skills to help with all aspects of their development. ‘Graduates’ are then invited to apply for the 4-Front Nurse Leaders group membership.


"Year in year out, this is one of the very best educational events in the calendar. There's always a really strong focus on group work and discussion, and that's so important."
"A colleague recommended me for the 4-Front, and my first meeting was so useful. I can't believe how many new things I learned. I wished I'd started going to the meetings earlier."
"The videos from the virtual conference were all excellent and relevant. I would really like to watch it again. I feel I understand the topics so much more now."
