This Rapid Evidence Scan was commissioned to identify diabetes programs for Aboriginal people with a focus on education, early identification, treatment, self-management, foot care, amputation and other complications of diabetes. Rapid, but systematic searches were undertaken of peer reviewed and grey literature. The included literature reported on a range of health and service outcomes and looked at multiple aspects of diabetes care, it also included patient and staff perspectives. Programs found in the peer reviewed literature were categorised as case management and care coordination, foot care, diabetes education, diabetes care, early identification, point of care HbA1c testing, and diabetes self management. Further specific programs were identified through the grey literature searches.
