Project update: Type 1 diabetes model

As part of a five year NIHR Programme Grant related to the Dose Adjustment for Normal Eating (DAFNE) structured education programme, HEDS researchers have completed a new cost-effectiveness model that has been used to update preliminary estimates of the programme’s value for money.  In addition, the model will be used to evaluate the cost-effectiveness of insulin pumps once the results of the ongoing REPOSE trial are available.

The model and results can be found at:
