Edmond J Safra Lecture Theatre, Strand Campus.
Diabetes: It's All in Two Minds
Prof Forbes, from the Florence Nightingale School of Nursing & Midwifery, will explore the impact of psychosocial factors on how patients adapt to diabetes and their self-management behaviours; before looking at how the way that health professionals construct and interact with patients impacts on patient behaviours and outcomes. Finally, Professor Forbes will look at the joining of these two 'minds' to ask whether collaborative approaches to diabetes care are any better than traditional methods.
