Moving On Up 

‘Moving on up’ is a 32-page booklet which focuses on the challenges and opportunities that young people face as they become young adults; how they can live well with their diabetes through this time of transition from paediatric to adult healthcare services and, importantly, the responsibilities they have for their own diabetes care and the support they can expect to receive.

This resource has been developed for young adults living with diabetes (aged 16 – 24 years) and their parents

The resource includes six sections focused on moving on:

a) to an adult diabetes service

b) to work, university or TAFE

c) to four wheels (driving)

d) out of home

e) with life

f) with a new diabetes care team.
