Join Us on Our Journey – Developing a new model of care for children and young people with Type 1 diabetes – NHS Diabetes – March 2012

April 2009 – April 2012

Background

NHS Diabetes commissioned Leeds Metropolitan University to undertake a research project called ‘Join Us on Our Journey’, to look at Type 1 diabetes service provision for children and young people across the Yorkshire and the Humber region. The original idea for ‘Join Us on Our Journey’ was developed by exploring the experiences of children and young people with Type 1 diabetes, their parents and professionals working in the field; the model incorporates the phrase ‘bus stops’ which was created by children and young people to describe the various points along their diabetes journey where they felt they needed to ‘get off the bus’ to access support (medical, emotional, social or educational) from different professionals and organisations.

Aim of this project

To develop and pilot a model of care that will deliver the aspirations of the policy document, ‘Making Every Young Person with Diabetes Matter’.
The ‘Join Us on Our Journey’ model will be used to improve the care provision for children and young people with Type 1 diabetes in England.”
