About Trend Diabetes

Training Research and Education for Nurses in Diabetes

Trend Diabetes is a working group of nurses with a wide range of different skills and backgrounds in diabetes care. It was set up in 2009 in response to a request by the National Clinical Director for Diabetes at the time, who wanted a collective voice representing all diabetes nursing groups.


Providing a wealth of literature to support diabetes nursing, including leaflets, guidance and frameworks.


From our two National Conferences to our selection of specialist and online workshops, we stage a range of events.


Our bursary will help towards travel expenses or registration fees to an appropriate diabetes educational event.

Promoting insulin safety

Supporting Insulin Safety Week 2020

Trend Diabetes is supporting the 2020 Insulin Safety Week through the Trend Insulin Safety Campaign.

Originally, the annual campaign was scheduled to take place in May 2020, but due to the impact of COVID-19, the decision was made to postpone the campaign until September the same year.

However, in response to overwhelming calls from the clinical community and extensive consultation, organisers decided to bring it forward to July instead. Now, Insulin Safety Week 2020 will take place across the UK and Ireland July 6 to 12.
