The Australasian Diabetes Data Network (ADDN) is an initiative of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) supported by the Australasian Paediatric Endocrine Group (APEG) and the Australian Diabetes Society (ADS) to build long term clinical research capacity in Australia for people with diabetes.
ADDN has established Australia’s first national clinical research diabetes database, collecting clinical information from people with type 1 diabetes and connecting the data on an integrated, secure, custom-built platform. This rich data resource includes national-level information about type 1 diabetes, available to researchers within strict ethical and governance boundaries.
The database currently contains clinical data from children and adolescents with diabetes from seven specialist paediatric public tertiary centres across Australia. With planned expansion to adult centres, ADDN will extend its data capture and provide richer and more complete information about the natural history, clinical progression and most effective treatment regimens for all people living with type 1 diabetes.
