BSLM Regional Director Dr Ellen Fallows has written an article for Practice Nurse Journal. This article aims to start the conversation around type 2 diabetes remission, using techniques to support lifestyle and behaviour change. Pointing patients towards resources rather than focusing on the monitor a medicine approach.
“General practice nurses are uniquely placed to talk about a brighter future for people with type 2 diabetes, and starting this conversation is likely to be so much more rewarding than focusing only on our current monitor and medicate approach.”
The British Society of Lifestyle Medicine wants to encourage more nurses and allied health professionals to join our growing movement – and to attend our annual conference.
We are offering nurses and allied health professionals can get 10% off the conference ticket price.
We hope you can join us at Edinburgh International Conference Centre between September 2nd – 4th. We have an exciting and educational conference programme planned including expert speakers from around the world.
