The Australian Diabetes Society (ADS) recently launched a new interactive website aimed at improving the care of people living with type 2 diabetes.

ADS president, Professor Sophia Zoungas said the T2D Treatment Website is the first of its kind in Australia to offer health-care clinicians a user-friendly, interactive tool to assist them in determining the best treatment option for their patients.

"The website features evidence-based information, easy to understand treatment pathways and case studies.

“Finding the right treatment early on is essential for ensuring quality of care and the best possible health outcomes for patients,” she said.

The launch of the website follows the release of a revised position statement by the ADS entitled, ‘A new blood glucose management algorithm for type 2 diabetes,’ (which is accessible via the website).

The ADS is keen to hear whether the case studies were informative and met individuals’ learning requirements, so healthcare professionals are encouraged to take the electronic survey at http://t2d.diabetessociety.com.au/case-studies/meetdeepa/#
