Annual diabetes conference for healthcare professionals promises to be a ‘world-class, unique online experience’.
A national diabetes conference with a reputation for being at the forefront of education for healthcare professionals specialising in the condition is set to become the “number one virtual event in the 2020 diabetes calendar”.
With staging a physical event not possible due to the current Covid-19 measures, the organisers of Diabetes Professional Care (DPC2020) have developed a unique virtual conference offering for healthcare professionals.
The event will now be staged online from 11-13 November to ensure that the free education provided by DPC will still be available to thousands of healthcare professionals working in diabetes.

Plans are in place to ensure DPC2020 Virtual will be the most cutting-edge, online event that any healthcare professionals are likely to attend this year.
The event will still be free-to-attend and CPD-accredited for healthcare professionals who deliver care and support to people living with, or at risk of developing diabetes and its related conditions.
Those who register will also be able to meet online with friends and colleagues and take advantage of the interactive virtual exhibition, the engaging agenda and hear some of the world’s leading diabetes experts speak about their specialist areas.
There will also be an event host, virtual networking and symposiums as part of the action-packed agenda.

DPC Founder Maggie Meer said: “We have gone above and beyond to ensure DPC2020 is so much more than a series of online webinars and we have fully incorporated compelling content which will be wrapped up in the most innovative virtual format there currently is.
“This event, which promises to be a world-class online experience, has been developed as part of DPC’s commitment to multidisciplinary team working, providing free education and sharing good practice to all healthcare professionals working within the field of diabetes.”
Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic healthcare professionals are invited to attend this year's DPC online as a virtual event
DPC2020 Virtual will run on the 11th, 12th and 13th November with each day’s programme starting from 8.30am to 2pm and then in the evening sessions will start back up again from 6.30pm to 8.30pm.
The three days are open for all healthcare professionals and will be suitable for all levels of experience and specialisms – from policy-level through to senior clinicians, primary care, community care and those that have just started their careers in relation to diabetes.
Taking DPC2020 virtual is an exciting experience, but for some may seem overwhelming, which is why organisers have put together a series of frequently asked questions.
DPC 2020 is supported by DRWF as registration sponsors.
