ABCD Diabetes Update 2023 - Abstracts

We would like to invite all course participants to submit a case abstract. If the case is selected for the Diabetes Update 2023 then 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 that 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. If you have an abstract submitted at the meeting you will receive a £25 discount off the course registration fee. This will be administered in the form of a refund after the event, providing that you attend the event in full.

Workshops will start by one of the facilitators providing a short presentation introducing the topic of selected cases. This will be followed by two 5-minute accepted case presentations from delegates that will be discussed in detail with support from the facilitators. You will then be able to ask questions, raise concerns and seek advice.
