Event Details

The 2016 Educational Symposium ‘Crossroads at the Centre: The Nexus Between CVD and Diabetes' will be held in Alice Springs with a focus on the issues around the important connections between diabetes and cardiovascular disease. The program will be run over a day and a half.

The Educational Symposium will feature a combination of relevant plenary presentations from renowned scientists and clinicians plus practical workshops.

The first day will cover the connections and links between diabetes and cardiovascular disease, disease complications and epidemiology. The second day will cover the latest evidence on diabetes research and issues relating to maternal and child health, and factors early in life that increase the risk of obesity and diabetes in childhood and adolescence. To ensure a patient centred and culturally relevant approach, we will include sessions which provide a consumer/patient perspective and which discuss Indigenous concepts of disease and treatment.


 

Key streams include:

• The Issues and Links: CVD and Diabetes
• Disease Complications
• Health Issues
• Diabetes
• CVD
• Maternal and Child Health

A full program will be released closer to the event date.

This Symposium is suitable for a broad range of health professionals, including GPs, clinical specialists, nurses, hospital staff, remote health and allied health staff, Aboriginal health practitioners and health workers.

Registration is free but essential.
