Our 90-minute Masterclasses are the perfect way to develop your knowledge and skills  without undertaking lengthy training courses. Scheduled for lunch times so they can be more easily accessed during your working day, these interactive sessions offer ‘bite size’ learning that focuses on the topics  most relevant to healthcare professionals working in primary care.

The NHS Long Term Plan highlights the drive to improve consistency of diabetes care in the UK in order to meet primary care treatment targets, and the  importance of supporting patients in understanding how to better manage their own health. These 90-minute masterclasses will discuss key issues related to management of diabetes in the UK, allowing healthcare professionals to develop their understanding of pharmacological interventions and behaviour change strategies to support patients to enjoy improved quality of life. Whether you are currently supporting diabetes patients, are studying the topic and hope to develop a specialism, or you just want to understand more about this increasingly prevalent condition, join us in exploring best practice in diabetes care via these interactive sessions.
