NPS launches a new online information hub on World Diabetes Day

Why learn about
type 2 diabetes?


On World Diabetes Day (14 November 2011), National Prescribing Service launched an online information hub to help people with type 2 diabetes be medicine-wise about their condition.

The online hub is a comprehensive source of information about type 2 diabetes, including its causes, diagnosis and treatment. The theme for World Diabetes Day is education and prevention, and in line with this, the new NPS diabetes hub offers information on the vital role of healthy eating and physical activity, as well as in-depth information on the diabetes medicines available in Australia, how they work and their possible side effects and interactions.

The type 2 diabetes online hub is the first in a series of information hubs to be launched on a range of conditions and health topics, including depression, vaccines and respiratory tract infections.
