EXTOD Healthcare Professionals Conference 2023

Group of road cyclists

Thursday 9th - Friday 10th November 2023, Oxford

EXTOD Conference returns in 2023 with a new and extended format. 

This two-day conference will cover the core learning of previous EXTOD conferences, and will also offer an advanced second day to build on foundation knowledge. 

Delegates can choose to book one or two days (please note that in order to book Day 2 (Advanced) you will have needed to have previously attended an EXTOD conference).

Day 1 (Foundations)

Day 1 will cover the physiology of exercise and how this changes in people with diabetes. We will cover strategies for managing glucose during and after exercise, basic nutrition for exercise, how to manage an event.  Lectures will also discuss the use of CGM, Exercise Education Programmes, and current understanding and research. Two workshop sessions led by expert HCPs will provide an opportunity to apply learning to real life case studies.

Speakers will include Prof Rob Andrews, Prof Parth Narendran, Manyee Li, Anne-Marie Frohock and Dr Alistair Lumb.

Day 2 (Advanced)

Day 2 will allow delegates to further their learning of exercise management in diabetes. Lectures will cover insulin pumps and hybrid closed loop systems, sports psychology, advanced nutrition, special considerations (e.g. in pregnancy), and extreme sports. A series of specialist workshops for HCPs taking care of both Paediatric and Adult with diabetes will be offered. Delegates will be able to choose from topics such as nutritional requirements for sport, school care plans, advice through the years, residential sports camps/ expeditions, diabetes technology (including removal and planning for not using tech), Sports psychology and extreme sports.

Speakers will include Prof Rob Andrews, Prof Parth Narendran, Dr Alistair Lumb, Manyee Li, Francesca Annan, John Pemberton, and Anne Marie Frohock.

Delegates will also be invited to book to join us for the conference dinner on Thursday 9th November 2023. A drinks reception will be followed by a 3 course dinner featuring a talk by Roddy Riddle, who will share incredible and inspiring sporting stories, all undertaken while living with diabetes.
