The SWEET-Project Better control in paediatric and adolescent diabetes: working to create Centres of Reference Working Party on Information on Lifestyle and Specific Subpopulations 14 May 08, Luxembourg
Paediatric patients with Type 1- and Type 2-Diabetes Predominantly children Prevalence ~ 0,5 % Predominantly adults Prevalnece > 3-8 % = < Type 1 Type 2
Better control in paediatric and adolescent diabetes: working to create Centres of Reference Facilitating the collection and monitoring of epidemiologic and economic data Encouraging the development of a minimum standard of care to prevent complications and improve quality of life Helping to share information and promote best practice at European level

The SWEET project has 5 specific objectives: 1) Strengthen the knowledge base regarding the status of pediatric and adolescent diabetes and related care in the EU. Description: In order to target actions, an overview of prevalence and related national programmes is needed. 2) Enhance and promote equal standards of treatment and care in pediatric and adolescent diabetes in the EU. Description: Good practice recommendations to reduce inequalities and improve control promoting minimum standards. 3) Improve control of diabetes and prevent complications by means of age appropriate patient education programmes. Description: Recommendations of good practice stimulating implementation of pediatric education programmes across the EU. 4) Support healthcare professionals in providing high quality specialised care to children and adolescents with diabetes. Description: Supporting healthcare professionals by developing pediatric training programmes. 5) Stimulate the development of centres of reference for pediatric and adolescent diabetes services in Europe. Description: Facilitate exchange of good practice and improve pediatric diabetes care by means of centres of reference.
