Cardiovascular disease and diabetes - a whole of life approach - an educational symposium

 

Overview

This educational symposium is run by the Baker IDI Heart and Diabetes Institute. It is designed for health professionals working with the impact of chronic diseases in Indigenous communities, in particular cardiovascular disease, diabetes and related complications.

It will focus on diabetes, cardiovascular disease and related complications from the perspective of prevention, diagnosis and management. The symposium will feature a combination of high calibre plenary presentations from renowned scientists and clinicians and well as a rotation of smaller group sessions aimed at practical skills building.

The first day will cover management of diabetes and its complications, such as eye and kidney complications plus cardiovascular complications. The second day will cover maternal health, such as management of gestational diabetes and diabetes in pregnancy. To ensure a patient centred and culturally relevant approach, it will include sessions which provide a consumer/patient perspective and which discuss Indigenous concepts of disease and treatment.

Key streams include:

Practical skills building workshops:

Registration is free but essential.
