The INITIATION study was an investigator initiated study. We gratefully acknowledge funding and material support by Australian National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) Centre of Clinical Research Excellence (CCRE) in Diabetes Science, Sanofi and Medtronic. The INITIATION study grant proposal was independently peer-reviewed by the NHMRC CCRE in Diabetes Science, Sanofi and Medtronic. JF is supported by an NHMRC-PHCRED Career Development Fellowship. Abbott donated the blood glucose meters (BGMs) and BD supplied the needle starter packs. Funding sources had no involvement in study design; in data collection, analysis and interpretation; in the writing of the report; and in the decision to publish this protocol. We would like to thank participating primary care practices, patients and research assistants for their support.
