COVID-19 Outbreak & Pediatric Diabetes - Survey Results Online!

Thursday, July 23, 2020  
2020 will be remain in our memory as the year of the pandemic with a huge impact on individuals, families, societies, and healthcare.
How have healthcare professionals and young people with diabetes in their care as well as their families perceived this? 

To collect some insights, in early April our Egyptian colleague Nancy Elbarbary proposed a survey amongst healthcare professionals (HCP) that care for children with diabetes, to document their perceptions, challenges and experience during this period. This was realized as a team effort; with over 200 centers in 75 countries that participated.  A big thanks to all of you who filled out this survey!

The good news is the mild/moderate symptomatology in children with diabetes (as opposed to adults with diabetes) and increased use of telecommunication.

More details on the outcome and the reported challenges are now published in Pediatric Diabetes.
