International spotlight on NHS Diabetes
NHS Diabetes Director Anna Morton showcased the work of the team in front of a global audience last week in Paris.
Anna teamed up with Nick Lewis-Barned, a project team member from the Year of Care, to do a joint session at the International Forum on Quality & Safety in Healthcare.
After Anna presented an overview of NHS Diabetes and diabetes in England, Nick hosted a series of Year of Care workshops, which looked at the theory of the programme and implementation.
Anna said: We did a powerful session on diabetes and personalised care which was well received. Speaking about the conference, she added: It was interesting to compare the different systems of healthcare from across the world and the challenges they face in delivering care planning.
More than 60 delegates attended the session, titled Showcase of diabetes improvement work in England, with people from Mexico, Malawi, Israeli, other parts of the UK all expressing an interest afterwards.
It was introduced by Sir John Oldham, Long Term Conditions National Clinical Lead Quality and Productivity, at the Department of Health.
More than 2,700 delegates from 52 countries attended the event at Le Palais de Congres, which ran between 17 - 20 April.
The Year of Care Programme, supported by NHS Diabetes, set out to demonstrate how routine care can be redesigned and commissioned to provide a personalised approach for people with long term conditions and has successfully learned how to do this using diabetes as an exemplar.
