A new way to help you and your patients with type 2 diabetes take charge.

  • What is the GP-OSMOTIC study?

    The GP-OSMOTIC study is exploring the future in type 2 diabetes management – Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM)

    Being a part of the study will allow you and your patients to try this new technology that provides a powerful tool for observing blood glucose patterns clearly and in more detail than ever before to guide rational treatment choices to improve glycaemic control.

    GP-OSMOTIC is led by the Department of General Practice at the University of Melbourne and is funded by the Australian National Health and Medical Research Council.

  • What is CGM?

    CGM represents a new way of blood glucose monitoring in type 2 diabetes. Reducing the burden on patients and providing reliable and meaningful data CGM can empower you and your patients to make progress to optimal glycaemic levels, improving their health and reducing the risk of complications.

  • What is involved in joining the study?

    GPs who join the study will be trained in how to use a CGM in their routine management of people with type 2 diabetes. Being part of the study will integrate seamlessly with your regular clinical care.

    Our research team will support you and your practice staff to identify and arrange follow up with patients appropriate to use this technology. RACGP QICPD points and a small financial reimbursement are also provided.
