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.

The development and validation of the EMPOWER-UP questionnaire

A group of researchers in Australia, Denmark and the UK are interested in your views about your interactions with your healthcare provider.

If you have had an interaction with a healthcare provider within the last 6 months and have (had) a diagnosis of either Diabetes or Cancer you may be eligible to join a 10-15 minutes online survey study in which a new questionnaire is being developed and tested.
