The Central Coast Health Alliance undertook a project in early 2020 to develop new approaches to the delivery of care to people on the NSW Central Coast living with diabetes.

The project coordinated and delivered a three-part workshop series for General Practitioners and Practice Nurses working on the Central Coast. Over three consecutive weeks in February, 2020, the evening workshops explored practical ways to deliver high level diabetes care.

WORKSHOP 1: Monday 10th February – Insulin and other new therapies

WORKSHOP 3: Monday 24th February – Self-management support: lifestyle modification, obesity treatment options & having a healthy baby
