Non-attendance at diabetes healthcare appointments - what are we missing?
Thursday 5th January 2023, 5:00pm - 6:00pm
In the first of the 2023 ABCD webinar series, please join Dr. Sarah Brewster to discuss ‘Non-attendance at diabetes healthcare appointments - what are we missing?’
This session will discuss how non-attendance at the diabetes annual review and specialist diabetes clinics is a significant issue, associated with worse outcomes for those living with diabetes. Dr. Brewster will discuss the limitations in how non-attendance is quantified, the complexity of non-attendance behaviour and the paucity and limitations of available research on the topic. She will talk through some of the recognised determinants and factors associated with the behaviour, but stresses the importance of ongoing audit, research and development of services to better understand how healthcare can adapt to meet the needs of this group of patients who may be more susceptible to the deleterious effects of diabetes.
Q& A will follow this presentation.
