Older people diabetes network events
These events have now taken place. This page will be updated shortly with outcomes of the events.
A series of free regional events will be held in March to launch our diabetes and older people network with all involved or interested in the field invited to attend.
NHS Diabetes, in partnership with the Institute of Diabetes for Older People (IDOP), is developing a dedicated network to support the improvement of services for older people with diabetes in England.
The network will bring together health and social care professionals as well as service users and carers, third sector support groups and other interested organisations. The network will offer information, including tools, guidance, best practice examples, a comprehensive DVD, e-bulletins, blogs and forums. Members can also contribute to the conversation around how to meet the challenge of an ageing population with a rising prevalence of diabetes.
In March 2012, we are staging four events across England to get the network up and running. These will feature presentations from Professor Alan Sinclair of IDOP, who is leading this work and key specialist speakers and interactive workshops covering a range of subjects.
