The Best Practice in Diabetes Centres Symposium has been an integral educational, policy and service provision forum hosted by the NADC. The BPDC brings together prominent and influential key opinion leaders with a focus on and passion for diabetes, with the aim to build consensus and inform the NADC priority project areas.
These meetings provide an interactive forum that aims to discuss issues important to diabetes centres and services.
The format of the meeting involves topical session presentations that are followed by focused discussion. Attendees are involved in consensus building and the development of guidelines/position statements.
There have been eight meetings in Sydney starting in 2007. The BPDC was originally “invitation only”, however due to an overwhelming public demand, BPDC will open registrations in 2020.
This is an exciting time for the NADC as we move forward in a consolidated manner in our quest to provide the highest possible standards of care. We see BPDC as an appropriate vehicle to achieve this goal.
