Participate in new research opportunities 11 September 2015 Two new research opportunities are listed on the Diabetes Australia website: Tools for resilience: A Mobile phone and web-based intervention for improving mental wellbeing and reducing distress in adolescents and young adults with Type 1 diabetes Living with Type 1 diabetes can be hard work. Self-care is complicated, BGLs can be unpredictable, and juggling the clinical demands of diabetes with the demands of ‘real-life’ can make it hard to stay motivated. Not surprisingly, many young people with Type 1 diabetes find themselves feeling angry, worried, sad and lonely from time-to-time. The Black Dog Institute is currently looking for young people with Type 1 diabetes to help us find the right way to offer emotional support. Weâ€™re researching a program that can be accessed online 24/7 on computers, tablets, or smartphones. Participation is completely online and participants will go into a draw for an iPad. Specifically, we are looking for people that: Have Type 1 diabetes Are aged 16-25 years and live in Australia Have access to an internet-enabled mobile phone and computer/tablet For full details contact: Dr Veronica Vatiliotis (Research Assistant) Email: [email protected] Phone: (02) 9382 9275 Click here to view the flyer YourSAY: Glucose Monitoring Study The YourSAY (Self-management and You): Glucose Monitoring Study is a new survey investigating behaviours and attitudes towards diabetes self-management and glucose monitoring.
