Is insulin right for me? Resources for people with type 2 diabetes
The study team has completed surveys, interviews and trials with people with type 2 diabetes. This has helped the team to better understand what these people think about managing their diabetes and insulin therapy, as well as barriers to making changes to their treatment as recommended by their health professional. Below are some examples of the research articles that members of the study team have published.
