The first Australian Diabetes MILES Study was undertaken in 2011 and was conducted by the ACBRD. It was the first MILES initiative. The survey was posted to 15,000 adults (aged 18-70 years) with type 1 or type 2 diabetes selected randomly from the National Diabetes Services Scheme (NDSS) database. An online version of the survey was advertised nationally. A total of 3,338 eligible Australians took part.
