Type 2 Diabetes NICE Guideline 1 year on - Dr Stephen Lawrence
Wednesday 15 March, 6.00-6.45pm
Since the first interation of the Type 2 NICE Guidelines in 2008 (CG66) there has been numerous updates - some minor changes focusing on technology, others much more significant and large. In December 2015 the most recent major update was released in the form of NG28, which was the subject of significant controversy from experts in the field. The NG28 has already undergone minor updates during July 2016. Though these rapidly changing guidelines risk causing confusion, they represent an attempt to keep pace with the rapidly expanding understanding of type 2 diabetes care. This webinar focuses on the experience gained from working with the updated NG28 one year on, as well as investigating the implications of the subtle changes incorporated in the July 2016 update.
Diabetes management in older people - Dr Roger Gadsby
Tuesday 21 March, 6.00-6.45pm
Fit healthy older people with diabetes can be managed according to the recommendations of NICE guidelines. However, many older people will have significant co-morbidities and some cognitive and mobility impairment. Management may need to be modified in the light of such problems. In this webinar Dr Roger Gadsby will discuss these issues and illustrate them using several case scenarios. The issue of over treatment in people with diabetes resident in Nursing homes will also be explored.
