Is insulin right for me? Resources for people with type 2 diabetes

Insulin injections are a very effective medication for lowering blood glucose levels and may be recommended if other medications are unable to keep your blood glucose levels within a healthy range. However, many people with type 2 diabetes have concerns and questions about injecting insulin. These worries can lead some people to delay changes in their diabetes treatment.

Aim of the study

The aim of this study is to develop and test different web-based resources for people with type 2 diabetes who are thinking of starting insulin injections. We aim to develop a resource that is evidence-based, acceptable to people with type 2 diabetes, and proven to improve understanding of, and reduce concerns, about insulin therapy.

What is involved and who can take part?

The study involves completing two online surveys and providing feedback on a web-based resource.

You may be eligible to take part if you are an Australian adult (aged 18 to 75 years), have type 2 diabetes, and are not currently injecting any medications.
