EXTOD PEAK Healthcare Professionals Conference 2019

EXTOD PEAK Conference Banner

A focused programme to appeal to all healthcare professionals with an interest in type 1 diabetes

Exercising for Type 1 Diabetes (EXTOD) have once again joined with the Association of British Clinical Diabetologists (ABCD) and JDRF’s Performance in Exercise and Knowledge (PEAK) programme to offer another interactive day of education focusing on type 1 diabetes and exercise. 

This impactful training day to be held on 18th October 2019 is run exclusively for healthcare professionals (HCPs). It was created after a number of surveys demonstrated that both people with type 1 diabetes as well as HCPs caring for them wanted such a programme. Previous meetings in 2017 & 2018 were rated as either excellent or good by 99% of attendees, and 80% stating they would recommend it to colleagues.

Changes for 2019

The new programme for 2019 includes greater contribution from the expert patient who will outline how they have approached the management of their T1D for their chosen exercise. This will help to contextualise the theory that will be taught during the small group workshops.  The new EXTOD buddies programme will also be launched – enabling contact between those new to sport and those trained by the EXTOD programme to support and educate. 

The meeting will also include sessions on sports nutrition, diabetes technology (including Libre Freestyle) and exercise. Breaking data will be presented from the first UK structured education programme for exercise in type 1 diabetes, as well as a one day education course from Australia. An interactive course syllabus will be available for delegates to view throughout the day on the conference app, compatible with both android and iPhones, and course materials will be available for download after the conference.

Building on the huge success of last year's conference, this one-day event will bring together up to 200 HCPs to hear expert speakers including Dr Rob Andrews, Dr Ian Gallen, Dr Alistair Lumb and Dr Parth Narendren deliver an updated programme that aims to continue to break new ground in education for type 1 diabetes.
