Public Submissions

The Call for Submissions on Stage 2 closed on 13 February 2013.

The Department appreciates the contribution of all organisations and individuals who made a submission.

Unless otherwise requested, submissions addressing Terms of Reference 8 to 10 have been published below. This component of the Review aims to evaluate the clinical evidence of the benefits of ongoing use of insulin pumps in patients across all age groups, the uptake of insulin pumps for patients up to 18 years old under the insulin pump program, and to support appropriate access arrangements.

Some of the contents of these submissions may be included in the draft Report with the exception of those that were requested to remain confidential by the author. The Department of Health has not published submissions, or parts of submissions, which contain personal information, offensive language, potentially defamatory material or copyright infringing material.

Responsibility for copyright in submissions resides with the author(s), not with the Department of Health.

All submissions have been converted to Portable Document Format (PDF) for publication and may have a different appearance to the document that was submitted.
