Putting patients at the centre of renal and diabetes care
Creating seamless services for better patient outcomes and a positive patient experience
On 8 September, the London Renal SCN held an educational event to increase awareness and skills for managing patients with diabetes and chronic kidney disease (CKD).
By linking renal and diabetes services in a joined up pathway, we cn maximise patient time spent in the NHS through increased coordination of care.
This session examined how specialist multidisciplinary teams can work across all settings of care — primary, secondary, community — to optimise management of patients with co morbidities (including medicines optimisation), support self management of care, and reduce unnecessary time spent by patients in the health service.
