Chronic disease management and outcomes for women with diabetes.


Diabetes is a global health issue. If not well managed, it can result in severe complications, increased hospitalisations and premature death. Tight glucose control is a primary goal for diabetes management. This project aims to understand the predictors of good glucose control for Australian women (particularly older women). Self-report survey data will be linked to administrative sources (MBS, PBS, hospital), and newly collected biological data. By understanding the collective impact, it will inform better management of this common chronic condition in older age.
