Following a phenomenally successful, Insulin Safety Week (ISW) 2019, the campaign is back. Insulin Safety Week 2020 will take place across the UK and Ireland, raising awareness in a bid to reduce insulin errors among healthcare professionals.
The campaign aims to raise awareness of insulin safety among healthcare professionals. It will take place from July 6 to 12 and follow the same format as Hypo Awareness Week. Register and you will also receive a printed resource pack, including posters, balloons and t-shirts to bring your campaign to life as well as an online resource pack containing graphics, templates and guidelines.
A total of 343 sites took part in the inaugural, nationally-organised ISW last year, which built on interest generated by successful local campaigns across the country, including in Leicester, Hastings, Eastbourne and Southampton. Interest in the campaign increased in 2019, with 531 sites taking part.
This project has been funded by Sanofi who have had no input into any arrangements or content.
This year Trend Diabetes is supporting Insulin Safety Week 2020 this year through its Insulin Safety Campaign, providing a substantial amount of leaflets, crib cards and also an educational PowerPoint slide deck.
