EDLF 2014The 2014 European Diabetes Leadership Forum, held on 4 March in Brussels, provided an opportunity
to reflect on the transferability of good practices across member states in diabetes management. Demonstrating
leadership in moving from theory to action and the need to focus on the daily management of this complex
condition were the salient messages of a lively discussion.

Hosted by the Danish Diabetes Association in partnership with Novo Nordisk, the meeting welcomed 240 high level guests from national and EU levels to discuss how to best manage diabetes as a model for sustainable chronic disease management. The Forum featured keynote speeches from His Royal Highness Prince Joachim of Denmark, patron of the Danish Diabetes Association, EU Commissioner Tonio Borg and the Danish Minister for Health Astrid Krag as well as a contribution from Christel Schaldemose MEP, Co-Chair of the European Parliament’s Diabetes Working Group.

The outcomes of the meeting are laid out in the Brussels 2014 EDLF Outcomes Document, which offers recommendations on secondary prevention, patient empowerment and effective diabetes management.
