Take part in research

The Centre invites all Australians living with diabetes to raise their collective voice and get involved in diabetes research. We also encourage healthcare professionals and carers and family members of people with diabetes to take part in studies where appropriate. This page is updated regularly providing details of current research opportunities.

Current research opportunities

Diabetes LISTEN Tele-Health Program

Do you ever feel frustrated, overwhelmed or worried about your diabetes?

If so, this new study may be for you. We’re looking for adults with diabetes who would like to trial a new telephone-based support service delivered by diabetes health professionals.

Seeking diabetes health professionals for interview

We are looking for Australian primary care health professionals to take part in brief (<30 minute) interviews to self-monitoring of blood glucose for Australians with type 2 diabetes.

If you are a health professional and are interested in sharing your views on this topic, we would love to hear from you.

Seeking volunteers with type 2 diabetes for focus group discussions

  • Do you have type 2 diabetes?
  • Are you over 18 years old?
  • Able to speak and read English?
  • Are you available to attend two online group discussions? (In November 2020 and February 2021 – dates to be confirmed)

We want to hear from you!

What would help students with diabetes at university?

We are looking for students living with diabetes to tell us about their experiences of managing diabetes while at university and how they might be supported.

Participants will receive a $50 gift voucher for their time.

If you have type 1 or type 2 diabetes, are aged between 18 and 40 years and a university student, we want to hear from you!

Do you live in Melbourne and have type 2 diabetes?

Take part in the PREDICT study

We are conducting a study with the Baker Heart and Diabetes Institute, La Trobe University, Centre for Eye Research Australia and Monash University to understand more about type 2 diabetes and its complications.

Whether you have had diabetes for a short or a long time; whether you are doing well or have problems with diabetes, you can be an important part of this study.
