The British Symposium on Diabetic Neuropathy (BSDN) is an annual symposium which focuses on clinical aspects of diabetic neuropathy. Its primary aim is to inform and educate on all aspects of diabetic neuropathy by inviting internationally renowned clinicians and scientists to give keynote lectures. This symposium is aimed at clinicians (diabetologists, neurologists and neurophysiologists, pain teams, general practitioners with a specialist interest, specialist nurses) and allied health professionals. The 2nd The British Symposium on Diabetic Neuropathy (2017) was held in Sheffield on the 24th of November, was a resounding success with over 125 attendees from the field of diabetes, neurology and neuropathic pain.

The 2018meeting will discuss key elements of diabetic autonomic neuropathy (DAN) with a focus on practical management concepts and will include keynote lectures from key voices in the UK as well as Europe. The meeting will provide clinicians and healthcare care professionals with an opportunity to discuss novel ideas on causation, assessment and treatment of DAN which is often underrecognised and but has a substantial impact on clinical outcomes, mortality and individual quality of life. This year, the symposium will be held in the wonderful university city of Birmingham 

The venue for the symposium is 

The Studio Birmingham, 7 Cannon Street, B2 5EP
