This national paediatric insulin pump forum is an unique opportunity to come together with your peers, benchmark your service and develop your techniques on the pump pathway from sustainable diet and exercise plans, to engaging clinics and effective education.
From getting started to maintaining pumps, the challenge of working with children on pumps and their parents is an ongoing one. This conference will focus on how to help them achieve, what clinics work, which people can play a key role and the best techniques and programmes to maintain engagement.
‘Paediatrics on Insulin Pumps’ will bring together Paediatric Diabetes, Insulin Pump and Dietetic Nurse Specialists and Consultants to find out more about practices in general and specifically what happens in other hospitals. Key focuses of the day are:
- Starting the pump journey and maintaining engagement: case study experiences of working with the paediatric and patient to enable the pump journey
- Developing technologies: insulin pump position statement, best practice continuous glucose monitoring and enabling flash glucose monitoring
- Diet and exercise planning: best practice approaches to lowering GI/GL and the impact of exercise
- Innovative pump clinics: taking a family and whole child approach with school management of pumps
- Smoothing the transition: ensuring continuity of care by closing the gap between adult and child services
