13 May 2021This National Virtual Summit focuses on delivering a person-centred approach to complaints handling, investigation, resolution and learning. Through national updates, practical case studies and in depth expert sessions the conference aims to improve the effectiveness of complaints handling within your service, and ensure that complaints lead to change and improvements in patient care.
The conference will reflect on managing complaints regarding COVID-19 – understanding the standards of care by which the NHS should be judged in a pandemic and in particular responding to complaints regarding nosocomial transmission of Covid-19 and delayed treatment due to the pandemic. The conference will also update delegates on the Complaint Standards Framework for the NHS which is in consultation and due to be published by the PHSO in early 2021, and will lead to a single developmental pathway for all complaints staff that rightly acknowledges complaint handling as a professional skill.

13 May 2021 12:00 13:00Diabetes technology, in particular real-time continuous glucose monitoring (rt-CGM) devices are revolutionising the management of type 1 diabetes (T1D). The devices provide important advances in blood glucose monitoring technology that address the unmet need for detection of day-to-day glycaemic variability and patient-specific patterns of hyper- and hypoglycaemia.
Currently it is estimated that less than 5% of people with T1D are using continuous glucose monitoring to manage their diabetes1 and the access to this technology can vary significantly between clinical commissioning groups2 creating vast inequalities in access. Joining this 1 hour webinar you will see thought leaders highlight the key clinical and real-world benefits of rt-CGM use. Explore best practices for patients on intensive insulin therapy and during pregnancy and review current access criteria for diabetes technology across the UK.
This interactive session is designed to bring to life the positive advances in diabetes technology and the importance of gaining access to support long term diabetes management. As well as hearing from thought leaders in diabetes, you will have the opportunity to ask questions throughout.
