60 million people across Europe are living with diabetes, equivalent to the total population of Italy. This number is rising rapidly, and many more people are at high risk of developing diabetes.
Diabetes leads to serious health complications including cardiovascular disease, blindness, amputations and kidney failure. The widespread prevalence of diabetes places enormous demands on health services, as well as the wider economy and social structures.
How can we address this major health challenge? Can we rethink how care for people with diabetes is provided? Are digital means truly an opportunity to improve diabetes care?
We interviewed a wide range of experts in diabetes about their vision for the future of diabetes care. Their perspectives provide insight on key trends, challenges, and possible solutions, as well as the role of digitisation in empowering people with diabetes and improving the quality of care.
Please join us for the first of two webinars to discuss ‘a vision for digitally enabled diabetes care in Europe’!
