Abstract: This webinar will discuss all forms of diabetic eye disease that have the potential to cause severe vision loss and blindness. These conditions include diabetic retinopathy, diabetic macular edema (DME), cataract, and glaucoma. It will help to educate the inter professional collaboration team (PPOD+A and medical diabetes care professionals), on the theory and practice of diabetes eye care delivery, to empower them to influence patient health outcomes in positive and meaningful ways. We will explore the epidemiology of diabetes, drivers to reducing diabetes complications, bridges to early T2DM prevention and detection, new research & therapies and current & proposed health policy.
