NPDA National Conference 2019 - presentations

On 18 January 2019, the National Paediatric Diabetes Audit (NPDA) held their National Conference at The Met Hotel in Leeds. Clinicians from all professional groups working in diabetes and other invited stakeholders came together to learn about how NPDA data has been used in research and to inform best practice in diabetes management. They were able to share experiences and ideas to inspire improvements in the health services provided for children and young people with diabetes.

Our presentations

The NPDA was fortunate enough to have a range of presenters, including Professor David Maahs, Professor of Paediatrics (Endocrinology) at the Lucile Salter Packard Children's Hospital and at the Stanford University Medical Center, and Professor Sir Terence Stephenson, Nuffield Professor of Child Health at the Institute of Child Health, University College of London.
