Brief description Young people with diabetes have to learn to self-manage in their teens, as they transfer from children’s to adult services. Few adult services specifically cater for young people and many fail to establish good support; management of their diabetes suffers. We will use evidence from services successful at engaging and supporting young people to redesign youth-friendly services in Hunter New England. We will examine the processes required to achieve this, and test whether diabetes control is better with the new model than the current service.
