Dear Alliance Members, welcome to our October NIPC e-Bulletin. I hope those that attended the 16th West of Ireland Integrated Diabetes Care Conference have recovered from such an energetic and vibrant conference. For those that missed the conference, a selection of photos and presentation slides can be found on the NIPC website HERE.
The 10th National Prevention Conference 2023 is just under a month away. This year’s conference line-up of speakers and topics looks amazing. Programme lead Dr Jenni Jones, has put together an exceptional agenda. As an added bonus, a special pre-conference symposium will take place on Thursday 23rd November, 6:00pm – 7:30pm.
Join 5 global experts as they give their 3 most important messages in 5 hot topics in Cardiometabolic Disease and Circulatory Health. This is a hybrid event which you can attend in-person or online. You can view the pre-conference symposium agenda HERE. If you have not already done so I encourage you to register now. Please remember, the main conference on the 24th November is in person only.
Other events taking place include a Masterclass on Optimising Outcomes in Cardiovascular Disease and Cardiometabolic Health in Primary Care Settings, Motivational Interviewing: The Essentials and the ever popular Demystifying the ECG course, you can read more on these courses and more below.
If you want to enhance your CV, then think about applying for our Postgraduate Certificate in Cardiac Rehabilitation, application deadline is December.
On the research side, we are preparing to submit for publication our main results paper from INTERASPIRE, which follows on from the presentation of a major late-breaking science abstract at the ESC meeting in Amsterdam in August. A link to an interview I did on this abstract presentation is provided HERE. I am also very excited that we are ready to launch EUROASPIRE 6, which will be coordinated by NIPC in collaboration with ESC.
