APS is a special society of the Royal Australasian College of Physicians and represents over 400 consultant paediatricians, of whom at least 100 directly manage over 3000 young Australians with type 1 diabetes, across all of Australia. The APS is responsible for diabetes management of over twice the number of children managed by the largest Australian metropolitan specialist child diabetes centres and represents the largest of number of health professionals providing this care. The diversity of practice location and resources has led to some innovative solutions to delivery of equitable services to children with diabetes in regional Australia. More creativity and support, including bipartisan Government support for this initiative is required to make a difference to all Australians living with T1D.
