A linkage approach for population-based measurement of diabetes complications in Australia
thesisposted on 2023-11-20, 02:12 authored by DUNYA TOMIC
As diabetes management has greatly improved in recent decades, evidence is growing for a broader range of complications associated with diabetes than have been traditionally acknowledged. This thesis uses linkage of Australian population-based administrative datasets to explore the diversification of diabetes complications. It identifies a great burden of hospitalisations for a wide range of conditions across all diagnostic categories, and a shift in the leading causes of death away from cardiovascular disease, among people with diabetes. The findings from this research inform clinical and public health decision makers to consider in revision of diabetes management guidelines and healthcare resource allocation.
