Innovating Patient Care in Type 2 Diabetes


The National Association of Primary Care (NAPC) have entered into a Joint Working Initiave with Industry for the delivery of this Practice Innovation Network (PIN) Project. The overall aim of this Project is to improve the day-to-day care of people with type 2 diabetets (T2DM) through piloting a flexible approach to disease management. This incorporates ways that tools, medicines and interventions can be deployed to support this is a personalised way - giving patients ownership of their disease.


A national expert NHS Faculty has been created to develop an innovative new element of the type 2 care pathway which aims to improve patient outcomes through a multi-disciplinary approach. It is the intention of the Project to test, learn and refine this approach in the spirit of collaboration over the pilot year.
