Developments & challenges for those caring for the patient with diabetes

A one-day conference

Royal Marine Hotel,
Dun Laoghaire, Co. Dublin

Date: 28th February 2018

Diabetes is on the increase in Ireland and recent studies have revealed that the cost of diabetes in some countries is estimated at over 1 Billion and this doesn’t account for personal/social costs of reduced mobility and sickness absence.

Our healthcare services need to ensure patients with diabetes have the appropriate, high quality care they deserve across the country so we can protect the health of people with diabetes. There are many ways to improve existing care and studies available have indicated that most diabetic related health issues are preventable; this conference will explore them in detail.
