About the Committee

The APEG Clinical Diabetes Network was formed in August 2010 with the purpose of working together to enhance paediatric diabetes management and improve outcomes for children and adolescents with diabetes in Australia and New Zealand.The goals of the network include advocacy, sharing resources and facilitating collaborative research amongst all member groups. Initial priorities include the development of a database and benchmarking. As a first step it will be important to determine the clinical resources available in each centre around Australia and New Zealand.

How to join the committee

Calls for Expressions of Interest (EOI) are sent every 2nd year to all APEG members (in ‘even’ numbered years) shortly after the AGM.  Members are invited to submit their EOI at this time and all applications will be reviewed by APEG Council.  The subcommittee is to have no more than 12 members, and the aim is to ensure that no more than 1 person from a hospital is on the subcommittee and each state is well represented.
