Profiling the Deterioration Risk Factors of Patients Diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus on a Diabetes Specialist Outpatient Waiting List

Indicative Funding
$30,000 over 6 years
Patients seeking specialist advice from a specialist outpatient department require a referral from their general practitioner to access services. This research explores the time taken for patients to deteriorate if waitlisted in the order of date accepted for their referral compared to rates of deterioration for patients if the accepted referral was waitlisted in order of the patient?s individual risk of deterioration. Stage 1 focuses on identifying patient centric factors within a type 2 diabetes mellitus cohort which lead a patient to deteriorate on a waitlist. Stage 2 involves developing and implementing a framework to support the reconfiguration of waitlist management.
