About D1 Now

D1 Now is a HRB-funded research project which spans NUI Galway and the Centre for Diabetes, Endocrinology and Metabolism. D1 Now aims to improve engagement between young adults with Type 1 Diabetes and their healthcare providers and ultimately improve their self management and diabetes-related health outcomes. 

D1 Now received funding from the HRB through their Definitive Intervention and Feasibility Award (DIFA) in April 2017 to test the feasibility and acceptability of the D1 Now intervention.The D1 Now team are using an evidence-based approach combined with a Patient and Public Involvement (PPI) panel (Young Adult Panel) to further develop the D1 Now intervention to improve positive outcomes for young adults.
