The next major task of the EDWPOP is to launch international guidance (also involving several international organisations including the IAGG-Garn and American Medical Directors Association) on the management of older people with diabetes who are frail since this is an increasingly recognised group of vulnerable people at high risk of disability.

A paper describing this work to date is being published in February 2017 with the full Position Statement likely to be available a few months later. The initial collaborative work is being led by Professor Alan Sinclair (Chair of the EDWPOP) and Professor Bruno Vellas, a highly distinguished clinical scientist from the University of Toulouse and a leading clinician on the WHO Expert Group on Frailty. Further details will be announced soon.
