8.15am Registration
8.45am Welcome and Housekeeping
9.00am Diabetes and Heart Disease – Associate Professor  Margaret Arstall, Director of Cardiology at the Northern Adelaide Local Health Network

Commonly major complications of diabetes involve the heart. Diabetes is one of the most malignant risk factors for premature and accelerated progression of atherosclerosis and in women can be predicted if a woman develops a complication of pregnancy such as gestational diabetes or preeclampsia. As a consequence ischaemic heart disease is often the first manifestation of  this atherosclerotic progress. Due to this and other more complex pathologies driven by diabetes, heart failure can ensue. In recent years clinical trials assessing new hypoglycaemic agents have been required to have cardiovascular end points and from this we have found agents that have significant therapeutic effects on both the management of diabetes and independently in the management of heart failure. This life journey of diabetes and heart disease will be reviewed during this lecture.

10.00am MORNING TEA
10.30am Diabetes Neuropathy – Dr Matthew Green, PainMedSA

Painful Diabetic Peripheral Polyneuropathy (PDPP), like Diabetes Mellitus, is a Chronic Condition. It is managed, not cured, no matter how many resources are implemented. As clinicians managing patients with this condition we need to understand how to assess them and when and who to refer to for further management. This talk will explore the assessments clinicians can implement in their practices to assess Neuropathic pain, identifying when to refer on and learn what treatments might be offered to the patients in a Pain Management Service. Multi Modal Management is currently to mainstay of evidence based practice, Cognitive treatments / Physical Therapies / Medical Management strategies are all considered. Medications and Medical Interventions (including Neuromodulation) are offered for patients who have severe and disabling symptoms.

11.40am SA Branch Meeting and National Office Update

 

12.20pm A journey from registered nurse to nurse practitioner  – Toni Slotness-O’Brien, RN CDE, Health2Go Primary Healthcare, Flinders University

1.00pm LUNCH

 

2.00pm Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) Overview and Workshop with AMSL, Medtronic and Abbott – Shaun Johnson, RN CDE, 2020 ADEA CDE of the Year in SA

This presentation will cover the following topics:

  • What is CGM?
  • How does it work?
  • What are the advantages and disadvantages of CGM?
