Redesigning diabetes care through new technologies
Diabetes is one of the biggest challenges confronting Australians and its health system, with approximately 1.7 million* Australians living with diabetes.
This project investigated the development of a user-centred, technology-enabled model for diabetes care. Through this model, people living with diabetes are linked with appropriate GPs and specialist teams. This is of particular relevance for people in regional areas.
The model was co-designed with people living with diabetes, and primary and specialist care teams to incorporate novel digital health innovations to improve health outcomes.
This project is another example of Health Translation Queensland supporting projects that explore innovative ways to improve patient care outcomes.
Project leaders engage with and draw up on the expertise of partners within universities, research institutes, and hospital and health services around Queensland.
