These joint international efforts to prevent, control and reduce the burden of NCDs are a step in the right direction. However, some questions remain around the quality of the evidence-base supporting interventions and the need for more concerted efforts to tackle this growing epidemic and their risk factors. Join our innovative and prominent panel of researchers and practitioners and get involved in current thinking and action on non-communicable disease care and prevention in emergencies.

Dr Adam Kay is a former registrar in Obstetrics and Gynaecology, an award-winning writer of TV comedy and best-selling author of This is Going to Hurt: Secret Diaries of a Junior Doctor. Like they teach you in GCSE physics, every action has an equal and opposite reaction. Breaking bad news, and dealing with death or complications take their toll on the caregivers; a fact that medicine has stuck its fingers in its ears about for decades. Is the fact that doctors can’t look after themselves one of the major factors in the current retention crisis? Or is it the least of medicine’s problems right now? Dr Adam Kay will discuss caring for the carers.
