IMPROVING DIABETES INSIPIDUS PATIENT SAFETY

In support of The Pituitary Foundation’s safety campaign for people with diabetes insipidus, we have collated resources for medical professionals, including a patient safety card, essential treatment guidance and relevant clinical guidelines. The term ‘diabetes insipidus’ is very often mistaken for diabetes mellitus, by healthcare professionals as well as the general public. We hope our new web page will be an evolving and convenient source of expert information for medical professionals.

CHAMPION OUR AWARD-WINNING PODCAST

‘Hormones: The Inside Story’ is the 2021 winner of Best Association Podcast or Audio in the UK Association Awards. The series aims to cut through all the misinformation in the media on hormones and health. It also contributes to the Society’s aim of engaging the public with endocrinology and its impact, as well as increasing awareness of our You & Your Hormones website.
