Multidisciplinary diabetes care is a team approach to providing diabetes support, education and intervention.   Under the theme “Strengthening Partnerships: Taking The First Steps Toward Multidisciplinary Care” the  conference will bring together a host of local, regional and international health professionals, all key players in the prevention and treatment of diabetes. From endocrinology to nephropathy, from wound care to the latest in drug therapy the conference is designed not only to inform but to empower, giving health professionals the tools they need to mitigate the effects of diabetes. Along with updates on International Guidelines, the conference will feature a high-level of clinical education design involving case-based authentic exercises and blended learning as we incorporate the most up-to-date methods in health education.
