The YDEF Community Diabetes Course: 19th & 20th June 2014, Warwick Conference Centre
The world of diabetes is changing rapidly, and as future consultants, we will be faced with increasingly integrated care delivery across the interface between primary and secondary care. This is reflected in the fact that diabetes management in the community is now a recognised part of the training curriculum, and you are expected to obtain experience of service requirements and management of diabetes in the community prior to CCT. Registrations for this course are now open, and we are fortunate to have some very knowledgable speakers to share their wisdom.
Professor Chris Byrne and SpR Shivani Misra have organised this meeting for the lipid section at the RSM on Thursday 22nd May.
