The Diabetes Specialist Group aims to provide a forum for dietitians with a specialist role or interest in the care of children or adults with diabetes.
- To support dietitians in providing high quality, evidence-based dietetic care for people with diabetes
- Improving the profile of dietitians within the diabetes multidisciplinary team.
- Share good practice and resources through study days, regional events, this website, the discussion forum, newsletter and our facebook page
As a BDA specialist group we work closely with the BDA, Diabetes UK and other agencies including all the UK’s governments to contribute to training, education and guidelines for dietitians, people with diabetes and the wider healthcare team.
The BDA Diabetes Specialist Group has one subgroup:
