DRWF supporters are invited to a presentation by The Royal Society of Medicine.

The Royal Society of Medicine invites DRWF supporters to attend a Diabetic neuropathy masterclass on Wednesday 10th April in London at 5.30pm.

This insightful masterclass will take the form of a collaborative forum, uniting healthcare professionals, researchers, patients, and caregivers as they explore innovative approaches to address the substantial burden of diabetic neuropathy. 

One in two people living with diabetes are likely to be affected by peripheral neuropathy during their lifetime. It impacts on mobility, causes chronic pain and increases the risk of infection, in addition to costing the NHS £252 million each year.

The masterclass will focus on key aspects of diabetic neuropathy including introducing new diagnostic tests, emphasising early intervention benefits, exploring novel pain management strategies, and best practices for foot ulcer management. Additionally, participants will gain insight into amputation and effective pain management for phantom limb cases.

This inclusive approach empowers individuals with diabetes and neuropathy to better manage their condition, contributing to collective efforts in reducing the impact on both individuals and healthcare systems. Creating a platform for attendees to connect, and network with peers, healthcare professionals and researchers, leading to the sharing of best practices and access to support networks. 

The event will be chaired by Professor Jonathan Valabhji, National Clinical Lead for Multiple Long Term Conditions, NHS England, Clinical Chair in Medicine, Imperial College London, Honorary Consultant Diabetologist, Chelsea and Westminster Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.

A panel of healthcare experts includes: Dr Prashanth Vas, Consultant Diabetologist and Diabetic Foot Physician, Kings Health Partners, Ms Fatima Cassim, Diabetes Specialist Podiatrist, Imperial College Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust.
