Moving On Up


A focus for the NDSS has been to better understand ways to not only engage, but also support young people as they transition to adulthood and gain more independence.

The NDSS Young People with Diabetes National Development Program (NDP) has developed a new resource, Moving On Up, designed specifically for young people with type 1 diabetes and their parents or guardians, about the transition from paediatric to adult health care services.

‘Moving On Up’ is a 32-page booklet which focuses on the challenges and opportunities that young people face as they become young adults; how they can live well with their diabetes through this time and, importantly, the responsibilities they have for their own diabetes care and the support they can expect to receive.
