Tackling the Toughest of Times

Summary

In 2013 our team published a paper showing outcomes had not improved in our clinic for young people aged 16 to 20 over the previous decade. So we made a number of changes, such as creating an age-specific structured education course and raising the profile of psychology. In doing so we’ve improved engagement with the clinic and its services, have better glycaemic control and results that are now better than the national average for this age group.
