Delegate numbers restricted to maximise discussion
Interactive features to add to your learning experience
Receive the seminar recording to watch back and reflect on
Gain 3 CPD points by attending an online seminar

The programme includes talks on all aspects of care of the patient with diabetes, to promote safer surgery for this group of patients who represent up to 10% of our patient population. Amongst other things, delegates will gain an understanding on how drugs for diabetes work, how these drugs can be safely manipulated during surgery; pitfalls of the VRIII; and current/future developments. The drugs used to treat diabetes have changed dramatically in the last 20 years.
The surgical patient with diabetes is becoming more common, and diabetes is a risk factor for a worse surgical outcome. It is now becoming increasingly appreciated that the surgical patient with diabetes  has modifiable risk factors as well as non modifiable.


Organisers: Dr Aditi Modi, West Suffolk Hospital, and Dr Sally Procter, Chelmsford
Peri-operative management of diabetes - the issues Dr Nicolas Levy, Bury St Edmunds
Practical pharmacology of insulins Dr Sally Procter, Chelmsford
Safe use or VRIII and peri-operative use of CSII Dr Patricia Mills, Bury St Edmunds 
How to organise a service that caters for the patient with diabetes Dr Anna Lipp, Norwich
Peri-operative management of the emergency surgical patient with diabetes (including DKA) Dr Jane Sturgess, West Suffolk Hospital 
Peri-partum management of diabetes Dr Aditi Modi, West Suffolk Hospital

Joining the online seminar

You can log in from the comfort of your own home, your office, or any where else that is convenient. All you need is a decent internet connection and a quiet room. We encourage all delegates to attend online seminars live to ensure you get the most out of the learning experience and interaction with the speakers.

Please ignore questions about access and dietary requirements during the booking process. Further details will be sent automatically via email. We will also be sending a link to a Moodle page with further resources for the seminar. Please ensure the email we have for you is correct, and remember to check for updates in that email account in the week prior to the online seminar.
