Diabetes in Schools Consultation

Diabetes Australia is inviting you to take part in a national conversation about the future of type 1 diabetes management in schools across Australia.

The Australian Government has asked Diabetes Australia to develop a new nationally consistent training and education program to support type 1 diabetes management in schools.

This project will build on these services and help establish an approach that can be tailored to suit the individual circumstances of all schools in Australia.

Your experiences will help us understand how schools can support children with type 1 diabetes. Let us know:

  • What works well?
  • What needs to be improved?
  • What support and information do you use that is helpful?
  • Are the needs different in primary school and secondary school?
  • Who should be responsible for what?

The first phase of the Program development will involve conducting detailed and broad ranging stakeholder consultation with the education sector, parents and families, and health care providers. We will also be consulting with health professionals.

See below for workshop details in your state or territory. If you cannot attend we still want you to have your say! There is a survey link below for you to complete:
