Research Partnership launches new patient Living with Diabetes (LATAM) 2018 report
Living with Diabetes is a study conducted amongst approximately 200 Type 2 (T2D) diabetes patients in Brazil and Mexico. The report will consist of quantitative 30-minute online and qualitative telephone interviews with T2D patients. Results will be available to purchase October 2018. US and EU markets planned for launch in 2018/2019, for costings and full proposal, please contact Mariel Metcalfe.
The report is intended to help pharmaceutical companies developing products in diabetes to gain a deeper understanding of how patients come to be diagnosed with it and how it impacts their day-to-day lives physically, emotionally and socially. It also explores patient attitudes and perceptions towards treatment, the healthcare professionals managing their condition, as well as identifying the types of support and education patients need at key stages of their journey.
The number of people with diabetes has increased four-fold since 1980, and prevalence has increased from 4.7% to 8.5% among adults. The World Health Organization estimates the cost of diabetes globally to be USD 827 million.
Head of Living with, Mariel Metcalfe commented, “With an increase in prevalence to 14% in Mexico and 9% in Brazil, diabetes is one of the leading causes of mortality and disability in Latin America. The Living with Diabetes report will shed light on the challenges people living with diabetes face, from timely diagnosis to treatment adherence.”
Currently being conducted in LATAM but looking to expand the survey to the US, EU and Asia, Living with Diabetes is just one in a series of reports offering comprehensive insight into the chronic disease patient journey from pre-diagnosis to stabilisation. The Living with Non-alcoholic Steatohepatitis - NASH (US), Atopic Dermatitis (US), Crohn’s (EU & US), Lupus - SLE (EU & US), Rheumatoid Arthritis (EU & US), Psoriasis (EU), Psoriatic arthritis - PsA (EU) and Ulcerative Colitis (EU & US) reports are published and available to purchase.
