October has been a busy month for the KSeHIN team. The weekend of October 26th and 27th saw the fourth successful running of the Dasman-Dundee Discovery Conference. The aim of the conference is to allow healthcare professionals and researchers to share new ideas and best practice not only for the clinical care of people with diabetes but also in how to educate and lead, to motivate the organisational change that is required to manage chronic diseases such as diabetes. The poster and short-talk sessions brought together family physicians, diabetologists, nurses, pharmacists, nurse educators, nutritionists and clinical laboratory researchers to inform. Workshops were led by students on the MSc Diabetes Care and Education demonstrating the skills the students have learnt and fulfilling one of the programmes aims to ‘train the trainers’. Congratulations go to Nabila Wasti (winner of best student oral presentation) and Shazia Kamran (winner of best poster prize). The distinguished guest speakers included Prof David Matthews (University of Oxford ) and Dr Waleed Al Dahi (Ministry of Health) as well as senior figures from the University of Dundee and Dasman Diabetes Institute . The keynote speakers covered many diverse topics including: clinical guideline discussions, primary health care research, public health initiatives, inter-professional education and the management of gestational diabetes.
