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.

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.

Do you live in Melbourne and have type 2 diabetes?

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.

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 visit your GP for type 2 diabetes medical care?

We want to hear your experiences and expectations of emotional support about living with type 2 diabetes provided in general practice.

Your valuable insight will be used to design and develop solutions to assist general practice healthcare professionals to assess and address emotional health, including diabetes distress, during type 2 diabetes care.
