13 - 19 Aug is Hypo Awareness Week - register now
NHS Diabetes is highlighting the dangers of hypoglycaemia in patients with diabetes to all hospital staff in England and Wales this month by staging its first ever Hypo Awareness Week, to run from 13 to 19 August.
Every trust in England has been invited to take part in the week and it is hoped the awareness and education drive will reduce the incidence of hypos in secondary care. Around 150 inpatient teams have already signed up to receive packs of electronic materials, and are being encouraged to hold activities and training, ensure they have fully-stocked hypo kits on their wards and that all staff (including receptionists) are aware of the symptoms of a hypo and what to do in the event of one.
The awareness week has been timed to coincide with the mid-August launch of the NHS Diabetes Safe Management of Hypoglycaemia e-learning module and to help prepare hospital teams for the 2012 National Diabetes Inpatient Audit in September.
To receive the pack and more updates, complete our quick and easy registration form here.
Dont miss your opportunity to get involved in an initiative which aims to bring awareness of diabetes and hypos to your hospital.
