Abstract

Diabetes is a major epidemic in Australia. Current care of hospitalised patients with diabetes is complex, suboptimal and contributes to longer hospital stay, poor outcomes and strain on healthcare resources. This research aims to improve diabetes care in hospitalised patients by implementing a proactive specialist diabetes team that will autonomously identify and provide specialist care for these patients. The expected findings have potential to shape a new approach to hospital diabetes care.
