Clinical Focus Day: Diabetes and Parkinson’s


Our "Looking Through the Lens" series of Clinical Focus Days will update your clinical knowledge and understanding.

Managing Diabetes and/or Parkinson's in an elderly client can be difficult because of comorbid medical issues and the generally lower functional status of elderly clients.

This engaging workshop is designed to empower you with the latest clinical knowledge on these two important diseases and how they affect the elderly.

The content is tailored for health professionals and senior care workers, to ground competency and knowledge in specific clinical aspects of Chronic Disease Management (CDM).

Diabetes and Parkinson's are insidious diseases that affect a large number of Australians, and can be particularly challenging to manage in elderly clients.

This seminar is facilitated by
Consultant Gerontologist, Dr Drew Dwyer
