This is a blog charting the progress of the DAFNEplus Programme Grant, which started in March 2016.  The aim of the blog is to:

  • Raise the profile of the programme of research
  • Provide insights into the inner workings of a large-scale research grant

The research is funded by the National Institute for Health Research, through their Programme Grants for Applied Research (ref: RP-PG-0514-20013).

This is a large-scale, multi-disciplinary, collaborative research grant awarded to Professor Simon Heller at the Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, and managed by the Clinical Trials Research Unit at the University of Sheffield, with input from ten other academic and clinical partners.

To contact us, please email the DAFNEplus Programme Manager at the University of Sheffield – Dr Lizzie Coates (e.coates@sheffield.ac.uk).

  2. I’m a type 1 diabetic and have been for over 30 years. I am due to attend a Dafne course in June 2018. I’d be interested to hear what the dafneplus proposals are for changing behaviour, after course support and especially using technology. I have just started a 3 month trial of the freestyle libre sensor and recently purchased the carbs and cals counter app for my smartphone and I’m hopeful this will help improve my blood glucose control and reduce the number of hypos i suffer.


    • Thanks for getting in touch Iain. I hope that you enjoy the DAFNE course and it helps you. You can find out more about DAFNEplus on our webpages here, but until we’ve run our big research study, we can’t give away too much information (unfortunately!). But you can stay in touch with developments via Twitter and this blog in the meantime. All the best for your DAFNE course!
