Diabetes in Schools Consultation - Brisbane
Diabetes Australia is inviting Queenslanders 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

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

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. Diabetes Australia will also be consulting with health
