Monogenic Diabetes: Achievements and next steps

This is a virtual event to discuss some of the work that has been done to raise awareness of Monogenic Diabetes across our region.

The event will be held via MS Teams on Wednesday, January 25, from 9:30 to 12:30

During the last 18 months, there has been a significant amount of work to promote testing for Monogenic diabetes undertaken as part of an NHSE nationally commissioned transformation project, delivered through the Genomic Medicine Service Alliance.

In the Central and South region, this has been led by Dr Katharine Owen, Consultant Diabetologist at OCDEM, Oxford University Hospitals, with support from colleagues across the region.

As this project is drawing to a close, we would like to invite you all to a virtual event where we can discuss with you some of the work that has been done to raise awareness of Monogenic Diabetes, as well as support education and training and the development of pathways and services to offer testing, diagnosis and effective treatments to patients across the region.

We would also like to use this opportunity to discuss next steps and engage with you all to explore and agree how some of this work can be continued in your local services so that patients continue to benefit from the achievements that have been made so far.

The event is free to attend and is primarily aimed at clinical teams involved in the diagnosis and treatment of Diabetes.

We would also like to invite attendees to present some cases or examples of successes and achievements that you have experienced in your own services relating to Monogenic Diabetes.
