Diabetes Professional Care 2016
This year’s 2016 Diabetes Professional Care conference was a hugely successful event. Held in London’s Kensington Olympia, many of the diabetic care industry innovators, specialists and thought leaders converged to share their knowledge and spread awareness of this increasingly prevalent and life-changing disease. The second ever instalment of this free-to-attend, CPD accredited exhibition included keynote presentations from NHS England and The Diabetes Think Tank, both of which were thoroughly engaging and informative, as well as many other presenters who demonstrated their passion and vision for the future of diabetes care.
When not attending one of the many talks or discussions over the course of the two days, attendees were given the opportunity to expose themselves to companies, their products, and representatives to get a feel for the field as a whole, covering the full diabetes spectrum from technologies, commissioning, diagnostics and prevention, to paediatrics, primary and secondary care. As well as being a great place for healthcare professionals to learn, the 2016 DPC provided a great chance to build invaluable relationships and network with those who share the same expertise and passion for diabetes care.
CCH made a great showing at the DPC and provided information to the attendees about the importance of education in the fight against diabetes and the best, and most compassionate, ways in which to care for patients. Although CCH is a fully online educational institute, it doesn’t mean we don’t relish the opportunity to meet some of our students. Conferences like the 2016 DPC always attract the best and brightest in their field, so it’s no surprise to meet CCH students at an excellent event like this, and this year’s DPC provided us with the opportunity to meet CCH student, Dr. Sandhu. Dr. Sandhu is a GP based in Southall involved with many local charities, but what is most inspiring about her is her commitment to her continued pursuit of knowledge, and her ambition of achieving what’s best for her patients. She demonstrates how learning is something that continues throughout life, especially in today’s rapidly changing world.
The great atmosphere and experience of the 2016 DPC will ensure that CCH will eagerly anticipate, and make a strong presence, at next year’s 2017 DPC! We hope to see you there!
