Content & Creativity, 7 October 2022, 1415 - 1615hrs
​Advancing Diabetes Self-care Through Digital Technology

People with diabetes engage with their healthcare team an average of three hours a year; for the remnant 8757 hours, they have to manage this complicated condition themselves. Digital technology has paved the way to support diabetes self-management through education, ease of data tracking and reporting, facilitation of communication, medication dosing advice and even automation of insulin. This session will take the audience through the current diabetes digital landscape, including evidence on how harnessing technology has helped improve diabetes outcomes.
