2nd International Symposium in Diabetes Technology

On April, 20 we had the opportunity to organize the 1st SBD-ISPAD Workshop, joining ISPAD and the Brazilian Diabetes Society.

Brazil is one of the countries with more patients with T1D in the world, and less than 1% is on pump treatment. Besides social and economic challenges, one other important barrier was the difficult access to information for doctors due to continental size of the country. The majority of patients using pumps are concentrated in state capitals and big cities, where information and support is more widely seen.  In other places, diabetes services lack diabetes educators, and other HCP. It was noted that there was a need of a more practical guideline to facilitate this process.

Coordination: Luis Eduardo Calliari
Supervision and orientation: Ragnar Hanas
Comments: Ralph Ziegler
Speakers – 11 speakers were invited to make a summary of specific topics.
64 attendants
- 58 physicians
- 6 HCP

1- Indications of pump therapy
2- Characteristics of the pumps in Brazil
3- Training patients for pumps
4- Pump for kids  < 2 years
5- Pumps for toddlers and school children
6- Pumps for adolescents
7- How to deal with sick days
8- Pump and exercise
9- Emergencies
11- Recommendations of monitoring (SMBG and CGM)
12- Sensor: How to adjust alarms
13- Upload and analysis of data

There was great discussion and interaction between audience and speakers about each topic. ISPAD representative, Ragnar Hanas, commented upon the presentations, gave suggestions and helped to design the final messages. General impression was that there was a great opportunity to discuss and learn about pumps. We are now in the process of developing a quick guide to be published online and in paper.
