Trend Diabetes will be hosting an online event exclusively for healthcare professionals taking part in Insulin Safety Week 2022 next month.
The virtual meeting, ‘Insulin safety through the years’, will delve into how technological advancements have improved the way insulin is dispensed to people with diabetes.
The lunchtime webinar will also explore the common risk factors that are associated with insulin.
June James, Trend Co-Chair and Independent Nurse Consultant – Diabetes, will host the exclusive event on Thursday, May 5, between 12pm and 1pm.
June said: “On this 100th anniversary of the use of insulin, it is important to review just how care using this treatment has changed.
“Over the last century, there has been significant innovation in the type and action of different insulins and how insulin is delivered.”
She continued: “With change, however, comes risks of insulin error. These are frequently related to the prescribing, preparation, and delivery of insulin therapy.”
Attendees will be given the chance to ask June live questions at the end of the webinar.
Debbie Hicks, Trend Co-Chair and Nurse Consultant – Diabetes, will chair the virtual event, which is exclusively for healthcare teams who have signed up for this year’s Insulin Safety Week.
Insulin Safety Week 2022 aspires to raise awareness of insulin safety in an attempt to reduce insulin errors among healthcare professionals throughout the UK and Ireland.
