Share your experience of starting insulin treatment and care support.

Researchers at King’s College London are looking for volunteers to take part in a study exploring the experiences of older people with type 2 diabetes who have recently started insulin treatment. 

Participants will receive a £20 Amazon voucher after the interview as a thank you. This study is based on individual interviews (phone, face-to-face or virtual). 

Who can apply to take part 

If you are, or caring for, an individual who is: 

· aged 70 or over 

· diagnosed with type 2 diabetes 

· on insulin treatment for the past 6-48 months 

To find out more contact Chaya Langerman, Researcher at King’s College London by email 

This study has been approved by Psychiatry, Nursing and Midwifery Research Ethics Subcommittee, King’s College London. 

NOTE: DRWF will from time-to-time advise readers of ‘calls to participate’ in diabetes and related health research studies. It should not necessarily be considered that the charity is in any way connected to the study or the group issuing the call for participants. If we are involved in any way, we will make this known. Taking part in a medical research study is a big step and further helpful information can be found on the National Institute for Health and Care Research website
