This project is funded by the National Institute of Health Research (NIHR).
This research project will enable the development of this existing web-based DAFNE audit database to include a research database which can be used to answer research questions and support prospective studies. The research database will consist of an extensive research dataset including biomedical, psychological and health economic data, which will be collected pre course (baseline) and at annual intervals post course.

Recruitment is ongoing.
Annual (1 year) post course follow up data collection for the 2009 and 2010 cohort is now available; 2 year data for 2009 cohort.
DAFNE research investigators are already making use of these data. Presentations were made at the Diabetes UK Annual Professional Conference 2012 (Oral presentation A22, A53).
DAFNE researchers are also planning and developing protocols for the further utilisation of this data to answer a range of questions regarding the impact of DAFNE.
Data will be available to investigators and researchers from both within the DAFNE programme and beyond as a resource for answering research questions.
