Dear Colleagues,

It is with great pleasure that PCDE invites you to the 16th International Primary Care Diabetes Europe Conference. 

This conference will take place on Thursday 15, Friday 16 and Saturday 17 June 2023, in the Barcelo Sants Hotel in Barcelona.
The conference had to be postponed due to pandemic travel restrictions, but now we are looking forward to meeting you again in person for this traditional PCDE CME event.

The theme of this conference is “New challenges for Primary Care in Diabetes Management”.
Primary care professionals are cornerstones in the care for people with diabetes, which is a prevalent chronic community-dwelling condition.
This brings along the need for continuous professional development (CPD) in the field of diabetes care, even more so after unexpected health crises like the Covid-19 pandemic.

Share experiences with your peers. Learn from the KOL’s in Primary Care Diabetes in Europe.
As a leading pan-European platform it is PCDE’s role to offer educational activities, developed by primary care professionals for primary care professionals. Issues like managing multimorbidity and integrated care in the context of diabetes, will be discussed.  This conference offers state-of-the-art lectures by leading authorities in diabetes. 

Poster Walk
Conference participants are invited to present research outcomes in the poster presentations and discuss the results with their peers during the Poster Walk sessions on Friday and Saturday. 

This conference is an educational programme not to be missed for primary care professionals involved in the management of people living with diabetes.

Warm regards on behalf of the organising and scientific committees,
On behalf of the PCDE Executive Board,

Assoc. Prof. Dr. Xavier Cos, Chairman
Prof. Dr. Pinar Topsever, Vice Chair
