The second Diabetes MILES Study (MILES-2) was a national survey of 2,342 Australians with type 1 or type 2 diabetes, undertaken in 2015. Conducted four years after the original Diabetes MILES – Australia study was completed, it provided an up-to-date snapshot of psychological, behavioural and social aspects of living with diabetes. In addition, the MILES-2 included assessment of new issues (e.g. diabetes stigma, app use). To download a free copy of the Diabetes MILES – 2 survey 2016 report click here.
