DIABETES PEER SUPPORT PROGRAM STUDY

The Australian Centre for Behavioural Research in Diabetes

The ACBRD is a highly professional group of psychologists and academics that has brought us in the past such glorious gems as Diabetes MILES - Australia 2014 Youth Survey and Dose Adjustment For Normal Eating (DAFNE). The group is a national resource for clinicians, researchers and policy makers. Its voice both raises awareness and influences policy and practice. It aims to increase everyone's understanding of what it's like to live with diabetes.

They've now turned their focus on peer support programs and are determined to figure out what makes groups work well and how we can all do better. HypoActive is a type 1 peer support group that is both well-established and in some respects very successful. We do our best.

Take a look at what ACBRD are saying and if you think your voice could add to the quality of this project (and I'm absolutely sure it would), then why not get in touch. There's an online survey and the option of further chats. I think that any HypoActive follower would contribute well to this program.
