Our scientific program of one full day will deliver the highest standard covering the challenges facing healthcare professionals when dealing with people with diabetes. The inspiring one day program will elaborate on obstacles in the daily life of people with diabetes and provide an education platform on how healthcare professionals can assist tackling these challenges and help people with diabetes to manage and control their diabetes. A significant part of the workshop is hands-on workshops providing educational proposals and recommendations that can be used during consultations.
We are delighted to have secured some well-known speakers with significant experience in clinical and health psychology research who will share their experiences and provide you with the tools on how to deal with your patients whether at the nutrition, nursing, pharmacotherapy, physiotherapy, podiatry or general clinics. Addressing emotional problems is a key psychoeducational intervention even if diabetes self care is adequate and is a skill is often missing in our training. This will harness your dedication to become communicative artist and empower your patients.
