Presentations in 2023
We were delighted to welcome Professor Kim Donaghue, former President of ISPAD and Head of diabetes complications assessment services at the Children's Hospital at Westmead, Australia, to deliver our international keynote presentation, which covered diabetic retinopathy and considered optimal screening frequencies.
Dr Jackie Elliott provided a view from young adult services, Professor Justin Warner (NPDA clinical lead) provided an update on NPDA results, and paediatric diabetes teams from up and down the country shared examples of best practice they’ve developed, covering topics including supporting diabetes management in schools, managing high HbA1c, achieving excellent outcomes in a highly socially complex area, and transition to adult services. We also heard about how use of a closed loop system impacted the parent of the child with diabetes, as well as the child.
