5th Joint Meeting

Diabetes and Kidney Disease: Advances and Controversies

This meeting will run as a virtual event with sessions running on 24th and 25th February from 17.30 - 19.30 each day.

The two years since the last biennial meeting has seen an explosion of research and data that will have an enormous impact on the care of people with diabetes and kidney disease. This significant advance has brought clinical teams working in the field of diabetes, kidney disease and indeed cardiology together in a way that has not been seen before. There is a real recognition now of the need to work as multidisciplinary and multi-professional teams to support people with multiple long-term conditions. 

This virtual meeting will be held over two evenings (the 24th on 25 February 2021) between 5:30 to 7:30 PM. We will bring together renowned leaders both nationally and internationally in the field of diabetes related kidney disease to discuss current challenges, potential areas intervention and new therapeutic opportunities. 

The meeting will include opportunities to consider new ways to work collaboratively across specialties and between primary and secondary care, understand how new technologies for glycaemic monitoring may benefit people on haemodialysis and consider how we improve patient engagement in our clinical settings.  We will also have a symposium looking at the latest data relating to SGLT2I and how we will be using these drugs in the coming years. Additionally we will be inviting abstract submissions and presenting the best abstracts received and will be providing updates on the latest guidelines being produced by the diabetes and renal guideline writing group.
