Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus in Adults Refresh PSP

Type 1 diabetes mellitus is a chronic auto-immune condition which can affect adults and children of any age. 

About the Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus in Adults Refresh Priority Setting Partnership

The treatment of type 1 diabetes centres around insulin administration and the management of complications or co-morbidities that can also arise.

In 2011 a PSP in the area of type 1 diabetes published its list of research priorities. The number of people being diagnosed with type 1 diabetes has increased in recent years and the recent advances in the technologies available for monitoring blood glucose and delivering insulin mean that the treatment landscape has changed significantly since 2011. The Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus in Adults refresh PSP will re-evaluate the priorities of the diabetes community and those involved in their care, to ensure that priorities are current and a representation of the needs of patients, carers and clinicians.

The shortlisting survey opened in March 2024.
