When:

Sunday, 30th September 2018, 3:30 p.m. – 6:30 p.m.,

At the 15th meeting of the Diabetic Foot Study Group (DFSG) of the EASD which will take place in Berlin, Germany, 28-30 September 2018 (http://dfsg.org/annual-meeting.html ).

The DFSG Meeting is a unique event within the area of the diabetic foot because it is a true interdisciplinary collaboration between diabetologists, podiatrists, specialist nurses, orthopaedic and vascular surgeons, as well as all other specialists with an interest in diabetic patients with foot problems.

Room: Amethyst

Clinical studies are often only capturing a small part of the course of diabetes and its complications.To optimize resource allocation decision-making, it is important to model the effectiveness and use of resources in various interventions over time. Based on available evidence from clinical trials, these models should consider different assumptions on the course of the disease as well as extending the observation period of clinical studies. Thus, models of diabetes and its complications have to find a balance between a convincing representation of the disease path while still holding true to the available data.The symposium is organized in collaboration with the EASD Study Group of the diabetic foot (DFSG). This forum brings together clinicians, health economists and modelers to discuss diabetic foot health-economic models, their structure, advantages as well as drawbacks of these methods. For clinicians, a general overview of modelling will be provided and some practical details on diabetic foot progression for modelers and economists will be presented.In addition, several examples of the whole spectrum and the diversity of approaches used in diabetic food modelling will be shown. The panel session focuses on the non-ideal modelling world and that the best results in modelling are results of a strong collaboration of all “stake-holders” - health economists, modelers and clinicians. Among speakers and contributors are Jan Apelqvist, Philip Clarke, William Jeffcoate, Stephan Morbach, Andrew Palmer, and Kristien Van Acker.Bringing together clinicians, health economists and modellers to discuss diabetic foot health-economic models: their structure, advantages and disadvantages, assumptions, they are built upon reliability and practical use for clinicians.

Breakfast Symposium - the impact of patients’ preferences in improving adherence

Room: Halle 6.3 (Press Centre)

Considering patients' preferences is not only required by concepts like patient-centeredness and shared decision making but also critical to the success of the therapy itself. It is assumed that an involvement of patients' preferences would improve acceptance and adherence to therapies. Especially, chronic diseases as diabetes mellitus demand a high self-management effort from patients which can be supported by a preference-based therapy. Lifestyle interventions are proven to be effective, however rely on the compliance of patients to engage in physical activity and adhere to a diet plan.Focusing on people with diabetes, the symposium covers a wide spectrum of aspects related to the measurement of patients' preferences. The speakers will present novel research regarding preferences towards diabetes treatment and preferences according to changes in lifestyle. Furthermore, an instrument and quality criteria for discrete choice experiments, i.e. tool to measure patients' preferences, will be discussed using the example of patients' preferences for diabetes treatment. Christin Juhnke, Reed Johnson, Ellen Janssen, and Jorien Veldwijk will give an insight into their research results in this area.The symposium covers a wide spectrum of problems related to assess patients' preferences focusing on people with type 2 Diabetes Mellitus.

Study Group Health Services Research and Health Economics - Kick-Off Meeting

(Download Flyer)

Who:

EASD Study Group Health Services Research and Health Economics

When:

EASD Annual Meeting 2018 in Berlin

Thursday, 4th October 2018, 10:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.

Messe Berlin, Entrance Messe Süd, Messedamm 22, 14055 Berlin

Room: Halle 6.3 (Press Centre)

The first summit gives a start to the activities of the new Study Group. The members of the Study Group will be introduced and there will be the opportunity to discuss their role. We encourage participants to exchange ideas about the study group’s research area and its vital elements. The activities for next year will be planned – participants are encouraged to discuss further cooperation projects, to arrange follow-up meetings and to talk about the accomplishments already achieved.We welcome participants who are interested in health services research and/or health economics to join the discussion about the directions of the group for the future.

About us:

EASD Study Group Health Services Research and Health Economics

 

In the end of 2017, the EASD Executive Committee endorsed the proposal to initiate a new EASD Study Group “Health Services Research and Health Economics”. The group is currently “in statu nascendi” and will be officially established during the 54th EASD Annual Meeting (EASD 2018) in Berlin in October 2018.

Despite the importance of health services research and health economics in diabetes care, there is no study group in the EASD addressing this topic. The group is aimed to consolidate already existing research initiatives in economic aspects of clinical- and cost-effectiveness in routine care, efficiency of clinical research studies or interventions with emphasis on patient-centeredness.

At the first stage, the group will focus on health care processes and patient-relevant outcomes in people with diabetic foot - one of the most frequently occurring complications. Later on, we are planning to widen the list of topics, following suggestions of the members of the study group.

Also, diabetes models combining existing knowledge from observational and intervention studies for the evaluation of clinical and cost-effectiveness of diabetes prevention and care are targeted as the first priority. Patients’ preferences is a further topic, which is considered to be of central importance in patient-centered care.

We intend to evaluate and advance methods used in Europe and worldwide. Based on this kind of partnerships, the group is going to establish joint research projects in an effort to further develop the link between basic science, clinical science and health services research studies.

The EASD Study group “Health Services Research and Health Economics” invites clinicians, health services researchers, economists and all scientists of related areas with an interest for the topic to the study group to participate in the kick-off meeting.

What:

The Mount Hood Diabetes Challenge Network is dedicated to promote an exchange of ideas and information between those developing and using health economic diabetes simulation models. It has run a diabetes computer simulation modelling conference bi-annually since 1999. A major focus point of the conferences is the comparisons of health economic diabetes models both in terms of their structure and performance.

This year the conference will be hosted by researchers from the German Diabetes Center (Deutsches Diabetes-Zentrum, DDZ) based in Düsseldorf, Germany.

​A pre-conference workshop on “Diabetes simulation modelling through the looking glass” focusing on different aspects of diabetes simulation modelling will be held on the Friday.
