The 2nd Joint Meeting of ABCD and the Renal Association is going to be held at the NEC, Birmingham on Thursday 13th February 2014. It will be free for juniors to attend.

Although advances have been made in the management of many diabetes related complications, rates of diabetic nephropathy have not changed despite the implementation of several interventions. Despite NICE guidance and QoF targets, optimal management that improves outcomes still eludes us.

This meeting brings together internationally renowned leaders in the field of diabetes related renal disease to discuss current challenges, future potential areas for intervention, and therapeutic opportunities.

We are particularly pleased to invite junior medical and allied health care professionals to attend the meeting FREE OF CHARGE, and encourage submissions of abstracts on the following themes - nutrition and foot care, glycaemic management and CVD risk management in CKD-dialysis. The leading submissions will be presented at a chaired discussion session and the abstracts published.
