International Centre for Allied Health Evidence

With a key focus on consumer led care, equipping, enabling and empowering people to drive change and influence outcomes, type 1 voice has aligned our objectives to those of the ADEA and NDSS projects.

Throughout 2013 - 2014 we have worked in an advisory capacity to shape services, develop resources and advise on specific NDSS projects with true consumers insight and perspective.

One such project was around Diabetes Insulin Pumps and CGM. Type 1 Voice has seen and experienced the power of consumer engagement at the recent ADEA Conference, August 2014.

We welcome your interest in providing feedback through our enquiries or surveys link. The benefits of consumer engagement has been embraced by ADEA through projects that directly address supporting people living with type 1 to feel more empowered in self management.

Past Projects

Workshop in Mount Gambier February 2013

With the invitation extended to a range of key stakeholders, type 1 voice took a type 1 diabetes workshop to Mount Gambier in the intention to connect with our country counterparts and also support the type 1 community.

It was a significant event as it was the birth of our focus on raising awareness of type 1 diabetes in the workplace. The delivery of a successful business breakfast, saw employers of person with type 1 and their employee share stories and insight into how the workplace can affectively support people with type 1 diabetes.

Stakeholders invited were Endocrinologist Dr Jan Fairchild from the Women's and Children's Hospital, Roche, Medtronic, AMSL, JDRF, Diabetes SA, CHSA.

We continue to build these relationships in country and in the city, currently working with industry sector to continue our awareness campaign.
