ISPAD Prize for Innovation in Pediatric Diabetes Care 2019

Peter Goss MB BS FRACP

General Pediatrician and Diabetes Specialist

has won the ISPAD Prize for Innovation in Pediatric Diabetes Care for 2019

 This Prize is kindly sponsored by Novo Nordisk

Peter accepted the challenge of creating the first specialist paediatric service in Eastern Victoria, Australia, in 1989 after completing postgraduate training at Royal Children’s Hospital Melbourne. Now based in Geelong, Peter and his diabetes educator wife Jenny manage many young people with diabetes. Their “Team Diabetes” success has seen diabetes practice expansion to Melbourne with outreach diabetes service delivery to Eastern Victoria.


Peter is passionate about quality diabetes service provision to regional Australia and was awarded the 2019 Royal Australasian College of Physicians medal for outstanding clinical service to rural and remote Australia. Peter has been a champion of rural patient advocacy and empowerment representing the Australian Paediatric Society (APS) in many official roles. Peter’s energy in innovation has included telemedicine, multidisciplinary diabetes team development and introduction of insulin pumps and continuous glucose monitoring into regional Australia. Peter has co-organized and coordinated the successful annual APS / ISPAD diabetes workshops promoting ISPAD standards to Australian diabetes teams.


Peter’s paediatric experience and successful management of complex chronic disease in schools led to the development of the world-first concept of diabetes e-learning courses for schools based on ISPAD guidelines using a proven learning platform. Peter led a team of local and international diabetes experts, parents, teachers and adolescents to create no-cost e-learning courses to augment individualized training of school personnel by parents and treating teams. Thousands of e-learning courses have been successfully completed via the T1DLearning Centre.


Peter’s experience, research, advocacy and exposure to legal expertise in school obligations to provide optimal diabetes management at school led to co-authoring 2018 ISPAD Diabetes in Schools Clinical Consensus Guidelines and Position Statement.


Peter proudly accepts the ISPAD prize for innovation on behalf of the team of contributors to the successful T1D e-learning school modules. Peter continues to fearlessly advocate for rights and needs of parents and children with diabetes.
