The purpose of this Model of care (MOC) and clinical practice guideline is to provide evidence-based information, about the management of type 2 diabetes in children and adolescents, for health professionals in Western Australia. This document synthesises the current available information and provides expert advice for the diagnosis, clinical management, pharmacotherapy and education of children aged eighteen years or less. Transition of management to adult care may occur from age sixteen years onwards or at appropriate alternative age.
The MOC provides information for health professionals to guide the management of this patient group from early diagnosis, referral, treatment and education to monitoring for diabetes related complications. It is also, therefore, a clinical practice guideline.
