Roche Diabetes Care to host webinar on best practice in diabetes management
Innovative approaches to diabetes care and management will be explored in an upcoming webinar discussion hosted by Roche Diabetes Care. The event will be held during Diabetes Week on 11th June from 18:00 to 18:45, and will showcase international examples of best practice in diabetes care.
Whilst the UK has already made great strides in the management, treatment and care of diabetes, lessons can be learnt from other countries to further improve services. Melissa Holloway, a passionate advocate for diabetes technology access, will facilitate the event, during which attendees will have the opportunity to hear some examples of international best practice including:
- Type 2 diabetes management in primary care in France
- Improving self-management for all people living with diabetes in Panama
- Access to technology for people living with diabetes in the Netherlands
The webinar will include presentations on the approach used in these international examples, alongside details of the outcomes and benefits to patients. Following the presentations, there will be a short Q&A to discuss potential learnings for the UK.
Michael Goetzl, Managing Director, Roche Diabetes Care UK & Ireland, said: “Whilst we celebrate all that has been achieved in the UK in the treatment and management of both type 1 and type 2 diabetes, it’s important to recognize the value of sharing international best practice examples in diabetes care. By looking elsewhere for examples to see what more we can learn we can continue to improve how we help people with diabetes in the UK.”
Update: This event was held on 11th June.
