Event Details

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. Pre-conference, there will be a public lecture embracing our ultimate target – the community. This maximizes the outreach and impact of the event increasing the value for all involved. Trinidad welcomes the top Caribbean and International diabetes practitioners to its sunny shores for the best in networking and knowledge-sharing.

Hibiscus Health Caribbean Inc. invites sponsors, speakers, participants and stakeholders to join us in Trinidad as we strengthen partnerships,  taking the first steps toward multidisciplinary care!


The Multidisciplinary Diabetes Conference - Trinidad will consist of local, regional and international speakers covering a range of multidisciplinary diabetes care topics.  The goal is to communicate the value of the multidisciplinary care team, identify the partners and strengthen linkages, to ultimately reduce the development of diabetic complications and the costs associated with care.  Topics will delve into the value of multidisciplinary care, renal concerns, diabetic foot, wound care and matters related to paediatric diabetes. Case-based authentic modules will feature current methods in limb preservation, wound care, neuropathy, retinopathy, screening and more.  Sessions will be practical and interactive giving the participant the various evidence-based tools they need to better manage their diabetic patient. Local, regional and international speakers will cover a range of areas including but not limited to pharmacology, vascular disease, patient education & management, oral health, wound care, lifestyle modification. 



The target audience for this conference is the multidisciplinary care team including general practitioners, surgeons, nurses, podiatrists, endocrinologists, nutritionists, rehabilitation specialists, pharmacists, and other allied health professionals.
