Summary

Abstract for the general public

This study aims to produce a literature review of prediction models for adverse outcomes in type II diabetic patients. Then using retrospective data from the Cairns Diabetes Centre, to find out the risk factors predicting the possible adverse outcomes such as poor glycemic control or development of diabetic related complications. Furthermore, the study aims to use a questionnaire to physicians/ general practitioners, as to what they consider to be the main risk factors for having adverse outcomes in the type II diabetic population they serve. Their response to the questionnaire will be compared with the prediction models found in the study.

This study is expected to provide a prediction model for 1 year outcome of type II diabetic patients taking into account the ethnic groups prevailing in Northern Queensland. Furthermore, this study is expected to indicate whether the physicians’ and general practitioners’ perception of risk factors match the reality.
