|9.15-10.15am – The Environmental Determinants of Islet Autoimmunity (ENDIA) Study||Keynote speaker –speaker (TBC)|
|10.15-11.00am – Diabetic Foot Disease: Sailing by Numbers
Clinicians are able to measure an ever increasing number of parameters relating to clinical care with increasing accuracy. Diabetic foot disease is no exception. From improvements in in-shoe pressure measurements, 3D cameras which measure wound size to new wound classification systems and epidemiological evidence our clinical practice exists within sea of numbers. Scott will explore how we plot our clients course and individualise treatment plans to make gentle or significant course corrections where required.

|2.00-2.45pm – Beyond Carbohydrate counting: effects of fat and protein in Type 1 diabetes
Carbohydrate counting is the current gold standard method for determining prandial insulin doses in type 1 diabetes, yet carbohydrate varies in glycemic index (GI) and the method fails to take into account fat and protein, which are also known to affect normal insulin secretion. Furthermore, meta-analysis reveals carbohydrate counting alone has little or no impact beyond routine care on glycaemic control in type 1 diabetes.
The impact of dietary fat and protein on glycaemia has been highlighted by those living with type 1 diabetes, who despite accurate carbohydrate counting, have found tight glycaemic control difficult to achieve in practice, especially for foods high in these nutrients. With the increasing clinical use of continuous glucose monitoring, the impact of these nutrients has become increasingly apparent.
Current research in type 1 diabetes shows fat and protein can significantly alter the postprandial glycaemic response and therefore may require adjusted mealtime insulin doses to improve glycaemic control. This presentation will examine the current evidence regarding the effects of fat and protein on glycaemia and the insulin dosing strategies currently being investigated. Finally, we will explore how the delegates can translate this research into clinical solutions for people with type 1 diabetes.

|2.45 -3.15pm – Digital Hospital
Queensland Hospitals are undergoing rapid digital transformation. We are changing from paper- based hospital work to a digital system. How do we integrate clinical documentation; medical devices and decision support? Does moving to a digital system mean better patient care or is it just moving from paper to a computer? A thoughtful, data driven approach to digital transformation of care is needed to improve the quality, efficiency and value of the care we provide to our patients.
This presentation will look at the 12 month journey of the impact of the digital world on patient care; issues of digital transparency and hypervigilance translating into transformative and innovative practice to improve patient care.
