The Australian Diabetes Society as undertaken a commitment to provide ongoing education in diabetes management for general practitioners to enable them to provide better evidence based care for people with diabetes. The ADS will be conducting a series of day seminars and workshops for general practitioners. The focus of these sessions will be on providing GPs with information and skills to facilitate their day to day care of people with diabetes. The program will draw upon the key issues identified through our consultation with general practitioners. The seminars will be conducted by prominent local diabetologists, with an additional goal being to build relationships between GPs and their local diabetes services. We anticipate to hold ADS GP Training Days in 2014.
