CHANGE AND CHALLENGE IN DIABETES AND ENDOCRINOLOGY
Significant advances continue to be achieved in our understanding of the diagnosis and management of diabetes with many research outcomes now informed and driven by translational research from a clinical context. The programme highlights examples of this trend in relation to changes in the epidemiology of diabetes and the use of bio-resources as well as progress in new therapies and how these may all in turn impact future diabetes care. Transitional services and psychological aspects of endocrine disease are recognised increasingly as relevant in optimising care of the endocrine patient; we have therefore sought to address these important developments. There are a number of recurring clinical challenges in diabetes and endocrinology that are faced by specialists, and generalists in primary and secondary care settings on a regular basis; timely updates on the background and management of some of the commoner conditions are presented.
The conference is aimed at diabetologists, endocrinologists, general physicians, general practitioners and other health professionals.
