Summary
Brief summary
The project aims to examine changes in glycosylated haemoglobin (which signifies stability of diabetes), physical, psychological and cognitive functioning following commencement of CSII therapy specifically measuring these parameters at three and six-month follow-up.
The effect of CSII will be measured via routine blood tests, questionnaires examining physical health-related Quality of life (HRQoL), diabetes specific questions, psychological well-being and cognitive functioning. Patients will attend a review clinic at the Alfred specifically for CSII patients.
Patients’ knowledge about their diabetes will be assessed pre and post CSII commencement (at several time points) using specific questionnaires and we will also measure glycaemic control via the recognized blood test of diabetes stability (HbA1c). The questionnaires used will include assessment of patients’ sense of empowerment, a self-care inventory on diabetes, a diabetes-specific treatment satisfaction questionnaire, and an emotional distress questionnaire that is diabetes specific. The aim is to assess whether CSII improves these aspects of an individual’s life with CSII.

Within the project, we aim to set up a group pump review clinic for all patients commencing pump therapy at this hospital.
