iDENTify: Early identification of type 2 diabetes & pre-diabetes in the oral healthcare setting.
The Melbourne Dental School, in collaboration with the Department of General Practice at The University of Melbourne and eviDent Foundation, is conducting an important study (iDENTify) that aims to investigate whether screening for type 2 diabetes in a private oral healthcare setting using the diabetes risk questionnaire (AUSDRISK) will help improve identification of asymptomatic individuals with undiagnosed diabetes or a risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
Victorian Oral Health Professionals are invited to take part by implementing a simple and quick screening process as part of standard practice. It is quick and easy to for both practitioners and patients, full support and training is provided, as well as payment for participating practices and CPD points.
