NSW Diabetes Forum
Sharing knowledge, information and experiences

The aim of the Diabetes Forum was to provide an opportunity to share knowledge, experiences, and innovation in diabetes management.

Three sessions explored improving care for people with diabetes:

  • requiring hospitalisation
  • at risk of diabetes-related foot complications
  • living in the community.

There was also a knowledge café session where presentations were delivered in an interactive format.
