Chronic conditions such as Type 2 Diabetes, impacts half of all Australian adults and many of us find that in managing these conditions, we are faced with our own daily challenges, which often leave us feeling overwhelmed, isolated & tired. At times we find ourselves questioning our ability to cope with the many extra decisions associated with managing our disease effectively, let alone taking the time to ensure we also address our daily self-care needs.
Our dedicated team of researchers and health professionals here at IPCIUM recognise the huge undertaking that goes into planning and managing chronic disease such as Type 2 Diabetes every day of your life. Which is why we are driven to develop an engaging and user friendly digital health solution that restores the confidence and agency of individuals facing the daily challenges of managing their chronic illnesses.
We want to connect with individuals like yourselves, who are living with chronic disease to gain invaluable insight into the reality of living with chronic disease, because everyone’s experience is unique. Understanding the nuances of your individual journey will assist our team to tailor our chronic disease self-management tools to your needs, ensuring we are able to deliver programs and services that actually support you, as our future user.
Over the next 4 weeks, we will be releasing a short, daily poll on LinkedIn to understand what living with chronic disease looks like to you. We are very excited to connect with you and get to know you better over the month of April!
