Healthcare professionals working in diabetes care are invited to attend an educational meeting on the history of endocrine medicine and diabetes.
The day-long event will discuss how diabetes and endocrinology practices have developed over the last 100 years by comparing past practices to current evidence-based medicine.
Hosted by the Royal Society of Medicine, the meeting will also discuss the change of focus to person-centred and individualised care whilst considering the possible changes in diabetes and endocrinology that are still to come.
The informative workshop, ‘History of endocrine medicine and diabetes’, will take place on Thursday, June 16, both face-to-face and virtually.
Check the Royal Society of Medicine’s website for the full agenda, which includes a range of topics and highly-regarded speakers.
