NPDA National Conference 2020 - presentations

On 17 January 2020, the National Paediatric Diabetes Audit (NPDA) held their National Conference at the Holiday Inn in London. Clinicians from all professional groups working in diabetes and other invited stakeholders came together to learn about how NPDA data has been used to improve services 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 diverse range of presenters, including Dr Gun Forsander from the University of Gothenburg, and one of the actors in TV's Vikings, Elinor Crawley, who lives with Type 1 diabetes.
