About Trend Diabetes

Training Research and Education for Nurses in Diabetes

Trend Diabetes is a working group of nurses with a wide range of different skills and backgrounds in diabetes care. It was set up in 2009 in response to a request by the National Clinical Director for Diabetes at the time, who wanted a collective voice representing all diabetes nursing groups.


Providing a wealth of literature to support diabetes nursing, including leaflets, guidance and frameworks.


From our two National Conferences to our selection of specialist and online workshops, we stage a range of events.


Our bursary will help towards travel expenses or registration fees to an appropriate diabetes educational event.
