'Diabetes Asia 2011' Conference & Workshop

Date: 5 - 9 October 2011
Venue: Sunway Resort Hotel & Spa Convention Centre

NADI Continuing Professional Development Series 

Prevalence of diabetes mellitus, especially of Type 2, is on the increase. This rise is most marked in developing countries, Malaysia included. Thus, there is an urgent need for strategies to prevent this ‘epidemic’ and for early diagnosis of diabetes. Beyond these, there is need for ensuring optimal management of the disease, its complications and associated diseases.

 To help address these issues, the National Diabetes Institute (NADI) of Malaysia, organises the Continuing Professional Development (CPD) annually since its inception in 2002.

 In 2008, this CPD was expanded as 'Diabetes Asia' Conference (DAC) Series to emphasise the uniqueness of diabetes presentation and management in Asians. While the Conference highlights on recent advances, the Pre-Conference Workshop(s) made available since the last two years, are to provide input on the practical aspects of the day-to-day care of people with diabetes.

 Objectives of the Conference & Workshop    

 Participants are expected to be able to:

·         appreciate recent advances and practical aspects of diabetes care.

·         understand ways of ensuring early diagnosis and optimal management for good control of diabetes, complications and associated diseases

·          apply knowledge gained during the Conference & Workshop to further improve care for persons with diabetes in the community
