Diabetes Queensland

        

Diabetes Queensland is the peak body for people with diabetes in Queensland - providing a single, powerful and collective voice for the diabetes community - and has been since 1968.

We are a team dedicated to supporting people with diabetes. Our vision is to see a world free of diabetes and its complications. It drives everything we do - every program we deliver, every message we share, and every resource we develop. Through our programs and partnerships with industry, government and community groups, we work to ensure diabetes care is always improving and evolving.

Diabetes Queensland helps people at risk of diabetes and those affected by the condition by providing trusted information and guidance on how to minimize their risk of complications. The organisation is responsible for the delivery of the National Diabetes Service Scheme in Queensland. The scheme provides products and information to approximately 190,000 registered Queenslanders.

We deliver a range of diabetes education and support services to improve knowledge and self management behaviour, including youth camps, peer support programs, group self management programs and specific programs and resources for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and Culturally Diverse groups.

Diabetes Queensland strives to ensure people diagnosed with diabetes receive the best possible care, by providing practical education and support for health practitioners. We deliver a range of health professional training programs for Pharmacy, Primary care, and Aged care.
