Diabetes management in primary care

The Auckland Faculty of the RNZCGP in conjunction with the Goodfellow Unit.

This day, designed for GPs and nurses will cover the full range of topics on diabetes from pregnancy to podiatry and diet to dialysis. It also includes sections on doing things differently – having those challenging conversations or looking at new models of care within the practice.

The emphasis is on dispelling clinical inertia with management tips and advice on when to refer. The aim is to provide clinical updates and guidance supporting excellence in practice.
