Diabetes on the Net is intended for healthcare professionals
This year, the Northern Irish Conference of the PCDS is celebrating its 10th anniversary, and will be doing so in a new virtual format. Building on our heritage we will explore how we will be building a new future for clinical diabetes care in Northern Ireland. Among the topics that we will cover are adapting to COVID-19, how to run a remote clinic, new evidence in diets, and latest advice on managing mental health in the context of diabetes.
As always, you will be able to pick up best-practice tips and hear from the experts on a whole range of clinical issues that are central to high-quality diabetes care.
We very much hope to see you (virtually) there.
