Registration now open for monogenic diabetes training course

Consultants, specialist nurses and specialist registrars are being encouraged to sign up for a monogenic diabetes training course later this year.

The two-day event is designed to help busy clinicians recognise and treat people with maturity-onset diabetes of the young (MODY) and other forms of monogenic diabetes.

Taking place virtually on Wednesday, December 6, and Thursday, December 7, the course will focus on the current practices and developments in the management of monogenic diabetes.

The programme will include plenary lectures on major topics delivered by Professor Andrew Hattersley and his team of global experts.

Managing treatment change in monogenic diabetes
Strategies to diagnose monogenic diabetes
Complex genetic syndrome with diabetes

Genetic testing in the future
Inherited causes of insulin resistance, including lipodystrophy and insulin receptor mutations
