Diabetes Virtual Clinics in Practice
With clinics turning more and more to delivering virtual rather than face to face clinics, this annual conference is a brilliant opportunity for diabetes and pump services to get up to date with the different approaches and identify how to make virtual clinics work – in practice – in your service.
In this time of increasing pump therapy and clinics at full capacity, this conference will investigate the different models of virtual clinics and how services can deliver to meet this growing demand. By sharing real evidence and practical examples, this conference will identify the impact virtual clinics can have on every day service.
