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 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. Diabetes Australia will also be consulting with health professionals.


Details of the upcoming workshops are below. Registrations are essential. To register please click the links below.
