NPDA National Conference 2018 - presentations

This conference on 19 January at The Studio, Birmingham, was an opportunity for clinicians of all professional groups working in paediatric diabetes units and other invited stakeholders to learn more about the National Paediatric Diabetes Audit (NPDA). They were able to consider how audit data can be best used to inspire improvements, and share ideas and examples of best practice with peers working in different parts of the country.

The event began with a presentation by our Clinical Lead, Dr Justin Warner, Paediatric Endocrinologist and Honorary Senior Lecturer, Children’s Hospital for Wales, Cardiff.

Justin spoke about international perspectives in paediatric diabetes and gave an update on audit activities.
