Guidance on management of Type 2 diabetes - announced 18 January 2021

18 Jan 2021

Updated primary care guidance on the management of type 2 diabetes brings New Zealand in line with international best practice. Today, the New Zealand Society for the Study of Diabetes (NZSSD) launched up-to-date guidance on the management of type 2 diabetes for primary care practitioners. The NZSSD took the initiative to update the guidance with the support of the Ministry of Health. Dr Helen Snell, President of NZSSD says, “The update is timely as it is almost a decade since the last guidance was released in 2012, and clinical guidance on the appropriate use of the ‘new’ diabetes medicines being funded by PHARMAC from 1st February was required.” Currently, approximately 250,000 people are living with diabetes in New Zealand and Dr Snell adds that "the intent of the updated clinical guidance is to increase the number of people with type 2 diabetes in New Zealand who reach their treatment targets.

This study, carried out by a group of trainee interns at the University of Otago, surveyed key clinical leads in 18 District Health Boards (DHBs) in New Zealand, as well as members of the New Zealand Society for the Study of Diabetes (NZSSD) to determine what changes occurred in diabetes secondary services as a result of COVID-19, and what changes could be taken forward in the future. We thank the group for this helpful piece of work.
