16 International PCDE Conference -Barcelona 2022

Dear colleagues,

We are delighted to announce the new dates for the 16th International PCDE conference. This conference, which we had to cancel in 2020 due to the pandemic, will be live again in Barcelona, as is our tradition, on 26,27 and 28 May 2022.

The scientific program will of course be different in 2022 and aligned to the developments of the past year, but the theme remains the same  “The new challenges of primary care in diabetes management”.

Because the condition is prevalent and chronic, primary care professionals are inevitably involved in the care for people with Type 2 Diabetes. This brings along the need for CPD in the field of diabetes care for these health care professionals.

PCDE can be your guide and coach. As a leading pan-European platform we see our role in expanding educational activities as increasingly important now that primary care is expected to take increasing responsibility in the glob­al burden of (type 2) diabetes from a multidisciplinary approach.

Due to growing interest we can offer you instructive, state-of-the-art lectures by leading authorities in diabetes. You are invited to present your own research outcomes in the poster presentations and discuss the results with your peers during the Poster Walk on Friday and Saturday.

As a primary health care professional involved in the management of people living with diabetes, this conference is an educational programme not to be missed…

Registration will be open soon.

We look forward to welcoming you in Barcelona in 2022.

On behalf of the organizing and scientific committees,

Warm regards,

Assoc. Prof. Dr. Xavier Cos (chair)

Prof. Dr. Pinar Topsever (vice chair)
