Last month, our Centre's co-Director Liz Davis, attended the National Association of Diabetes Centre's (NADC) Symposium in Sydney. The event brought together diabetes specialists from a number of research and clinical facilities across Australia, who were all acknowledged for their 'best practice' in diabetes care. The Hon. Sussan Ley MP also attended and shared insights into the Australian National Diabetes Strategy.
As the only paediatric centre accredited as a centre of clinical excellence in Australia, we were honoured to be invited to present recent initiatives in the PMH diabetes clinic. This recognition as a clinical centre of excellence would not have been possible without our team's hard work and dedication in working towards improving the lives of children living with type 1 diabetes, and the valuable feedback and input from the families in our service.
The symposium included topical presentations followed by the development of guidelines and position statements.
