The Wearables Integrated Technology (Wear-IT) program: General Practices Interest Survey

Thank you for your interest in the Wearables Integrated Technology (Wear-IT) program.

Our multi-institutional research team are conducting a study to examine the effectiveness and cost effectiveness of the Wear-IT program in reducing HbA1c levels among patients with Type 2 Diabetes, as well as improve their macrovascular risk factors and quality of life.

The program will use digital technologies, including wearable devices (continuous glucose monitor, physical activity monitor and BP monitor), to help patients improve dietary and exercise behaviours in collaboration with their care team.

We are seeking 30 general practices to participate in this study and for each practice to recruit approximately 13 adult patients with Type 2 Diabetes.

All practices will receive $1,000 to cover administrative costs. The identified study champion will also receive a $200 shopping voucher. Other costs, such as practice nurse time to help patients set dietary and exercise goals, will also be covered by the study.
