Transition from Paediatric to Adult Diabetes Services
This inspiring National Networking Forum will share best practice case studies and innovative approaches, from like-minded colleagues across the NHS, for improving young people’s engagement during their transition from paediatric to adult services. Gain a fresh perspective on working collaboratively inside and outside of your organisation, improving motivation and managing transition for patients on pumps.
This conference has been specially designed for those who are finding it increasingly challenging to engage young people in their diabetes care during the transition processes. By taking one day out to share your experiences and learn from others, you will return to your role with the knowledge and motivation to work collaboratively to empower young people with their diabetes care.
- Developing a network approach: getting it right for young people by working collaboratively across your MDT and understanding how you can adapt ‘Ready Steady Go’ for your service
- Improving engagement: maximise motivation to keep your patients engaged, empower young people in their diabetes care and hear lessons learnt from patient experiences
- Managing transition on pumps: collaborate with adult services to fully support young people on their pump journey
- Working with your MDT: ensure continuity of care, close the gap between adult and child services and improve your transition processes to enhance young people’s experiences
