Entitled ‘Advancing Care: Protecting HCPs in Practice’, the webinar will take place virtually on Thursday, May 18, between 6.30pm and 7.30pm.
The one-hour session will be split into two parts, with the first section providing a non-promotional educational session on the use of safety-engineered insulin delivery devices and evaluating current and evolving safety needs of healthcare professionals.

The webinar will be held during this year’s Insulin Safety Week – an annual campaign designed to educate nurses, doctors and other healthcare staff about insulin and the need to understand the drug and use it safely.
