Three year journey to better diabetes care for children

NHS Diabetes commissioned Leeds Metropolitan University to undertake a three-year research project called Join Us On Our Journey.

The aims of the research were to develop a model of care that will deliver the aspirations of the policy document Making Every Young Person with Diabetes Matter and improve care for children and young people with type 1 diabetes in England. The findings show that there are certain aspects of the care pathway that need to be addressed. In particular, diabetes care, resources, education, psychological support, school/college and transition were found to be the main areas of concern.
