Type 2 diabetes focal point workshop

We have launched a new focal point workshop on Type 2 diabetes

More than one in 20 people in the UK have diabetes, and 90 percent of people with diabetes have type 2 diabetes. Every week, over 100 amputations are carried out on people with diabetes because of complications connected with their condition, and up to 80 percent of these are preventable. Diabetes is the leading cause of blindness in people of working age in the UK.1

CPPE’s Type 2 diabetes focal point workshop aims to update pharmacy professionals’ knowledge of the management of type 2 diabetes. The programme will focus on how to better manage the condition, reduce complications and improve outcomes for people with type 2 diabetes. This evening workshop has events running across the country from April to October. It lasts an hour and 45 minutes and gives pharmacy professionals the opportunity to work through case studies with colleagues, discuss how they would respond to clinical scenarios, as well as watching a consultation on one of these scenarios. 

Book now through our website.
