Diabetes Update 2024 - Abstracts

We invite all course participants to submit a case abstract. If selected for the Diabetes Update 2024, an oral presentation of the case will take place in a related workshop during the meeting.

The main aim of each workshop is to discuss cases you routinely encounter in your diabetes clinics. All delegates are encouraged to submit an abstract of a routine clinical case that will be of interest to the topics described below. We are not looking for unusual cases, simply what you would see day-to-day in your clinic. Delegates who have their abstract selected will receive a £25 discount on the course registration fee. This will be administered as a refund after the event, provided that the full event is attended.

Workshops will commence with a short presentation from a facilitator, which will introduce the session topic. This will be followed by two 5-minute case presentations from delegates, which will be discussed in detail with support from the facilitators. There will be an opportunity to ask questions, raise concerns and seek advice.

All cases submitted must be directly relevant to one of the topics listed below.

  • Management of diabetes during acute illness or surgery
  • Conception and pregnancy in diabetes
