Huddersfield primary care diabetes conference
As well as being the main speakers at the conference we presented and facilitated sessions.
We shared the latest research on diabetes treatment pathways and case studies which illustrated the benefits of best practice.
Questions and answers sessions followed.
Education session for pharmacy dispensers
Pharmacists are often the first port of call for people looking for health advice.
In this well-received session we considered the essential role of pharmacy professionals in diabetes management.
We delivered some targeted education covering a diabetes overview, complications, risk reduction and treatment pathways.
The session was well-received, underlined by the positive feedback from evaluation forms.

Concentrating on diabetes management, this competency-based training was tailored to meet their needs.
