NAME OF COLLECTION

National Diabetes Register (NDR)


OVERVIEW

The National Diabetes Register (NDR) is an ongoing database that is the responsibility of the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW). It collects information about people who use insulin as part of their treatment for diabetes.

The objectives of the Register are to:

  • monitor and report on the incidence of insulin-treated diabetes
  • provide a sampling frame for scientifically valid and ethically approved epidemiological and clinical studies of insulin-treated diabetes
  • provide information to health service providers and planners at Australian, state and regional levels
  • help monitor national diabetes indicators.

Data are provided by Diabetes Australia (who operate the National Diabetes Services Scheme) and the Australasian Paediatric Endocrine Group who collect information about children with diabetes.


SCOPE

The NDR includes all persons who began using insulin for management of diabetes on and since 1 January 1999, and who have consented to be included in the Register. These include persons using insulin to manage Type 1, Type 2, gestational diabetes mellitus and other types of diabetes.
