Making in-roads

JDRF's Pathway to Choice project has helped to inform

the new NICE guidelines, with the NHS opening up to a

greater uptake of diabetes tech.

Pathway to Choice is an

ongoing project led by JDRF

and is a partnership backed

by Abbott, Dexcom, Insulet

and Roche. The companies pooled

funding in order to help the charity

to find ways to accelerate access

- and improve wider uptake - to

treatments and technologies for

people with Type 1 diabetes.

According to the charity, only

30% of people with Type 1 diabetes

reach their recommended blood

glucose targets, putting them at

greater risk of health complications.

People with Type 1 diabetes who

use medical technologies often find

it easier to manage their levels and

thereby reduce related health risks.

As a result of the partnership,

JDRF commissioned market research

to understand the motivations and

barriers people with Type 1 diabetes

face in making treatment choices,

as only a small percentage of those

living with the condition in the UK

use more med-tech-based solutions.

The findings of its Pathway to Choice

report, launched in February 2020,

enabled the charity to explore the

types of support and interventions

that needed to be developed in order

to help people living with Type 1

diabetes choose the best possible

treatments for themselves and,

indeed, be given a choice of options.

Uptake and input

Hilary Nathan, JDRF's Policy,

Communications & Community

Engagement Director explains the

plan. "We did a lot of consultations,"

she says, "For example, there is

an All-Party Parliamentary Group

[APPG] on diabetes, but there is

also a committee for the uptake of

technology, which is not just about

diabetes. We spoke to any group

who was prepared to give input.

Speaking of which, three years ago

JDRF merged with INPUT, another

charity, but one with a focus on

getting people onto insulin pumps.

Over time, it broadened its focus to

all diabetes tech and how to access

it, particularly what criteria you had

to fulfil and how to go about it. At the

first INPUT Fusion event, a gathering

with speakers and a small exhibition

of products, 115 people attended.

At the last one, as part of JDRF,

there were 700 to 800 attendees

in the event, which was virtual due

to covid."
