Considerations around managing your diabetic patient in 2020

Considerations around managing your diabetic patient in 2020

[London, 29 June 2020] – The Vet Show Global Series will continue this Wednesday, 1 July 2020 at 7 PM BST (2 PM EDT, 11 AM PDT). The series is free of charge and open to all veterinary professionals, but places are limited.

Considerations around managing your diabetic patient in 2020

Recent evidence from general practice indicates that approximately 33% of diabetic patients are dead within one year of diagnosis. Yes, you read that correctly – 33%!

This lecture will focus on the reasons behind these disturbing figures and in particular the increasing recognition of the importance of a triangulated effort between the members of the veterinary team, the owner and the patient in achieving a successful outcome of standard “diabetics”. There will also be discussion around achieving a balance between some level of standardisation and the need for individual flexibility.

The learning outcomes for this lecture will include:

  1. Recognition and understanding of what concerns owners the most about taking on a diabetic patient 
  2. Because of the reasons above recognition of the need to emphasise principles, not protocols.
  3. An understanding of the limitations of the variable importance of different forms of insulin, different feeding regimes and the pros and cons of different monitoring techniques available in 2020.
