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.

Living with diabetes can be tough. You may feel frustrated or discouraged at times. If you would like to build on your problem-solving skills, the LISTEN Study may be for you…

We are looking for adults with type 1 or type 2 diabetes to take part in a study comparing the LISTEN program to other available support.

LISTEN is a new telehealth program to help people better manage the emotional side of diabetes.
