Session Two: Monogenic Diabetes in pregnancy
Join us for our second edition of Lunch and learn, a session for nurses and midwives focused on Monogenic Diabetes.
Monogenic diabetes is a rare form of diabetes caused by a mutation in a single gene and can often be misdiagnosed as type 1 diabetes. Accurate diagnosis and identification of monogenic diabetes can often lead to treatment changes that improve diabetes control and other outcomes, and there is a key role for nurses and midwives in helping patients receive the correct diagnosis.
Speakers and topics covered:
An Introduction to the National Genomic Test Directory
Kelly Williams, Lead Genomic Midwife North Thames GMSA
Joanne Hargrave, Lead Genomic Midwife, South East GMSA
This session will introduce the national genomic test directory, which details all genomic tests commissioned in England, including tests for monogenic diabetes.
Monogenic Diabetes in Pregnancy
Dr Niki Margari, Diabetes and Endocrinology Consultant at University College London Hospital
Dr Nishel Shah, Consultant Obstetrician at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital
