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/#

In June 2016, Country SA PHN commissioned ‘Outcome Services’ to conduct a General Practice and Allied Health Needs Survey to benchmark our first 12 months in operation.
We want to use the survey results to determine how we can best support General Practice and Allied Health professionals. We also want to analyse the responses to help us shape a strategic framework for our next 12 months. In order to do this successfully, we need to establish how we can improve and best serve your needs.
The survey was sent to 461 individuals from General Practices across the Country SA PHN region. 167 individuals participated in the survey or 36%. It was also sent to 143 Allied Health Professionals with 62 of these responding, or 43%.
The following summary is a snapshot of the survey results. Thank you very much to all those who participated. We appreciate your time and greatly value your feedback. We look forward to working to address your responses and supporting you in your future endeavours in 2017 and beyond.
