Regulation of personalised digital closed loop systems to manage diabetes in children
IoT technologies in the provision of healthcare are advancing rapidly, testing the adequacy of regulation and ethical oversight. This project is a case study of how these technologies are starting to be used in childhood diabetes management. It is engaged with current clinical concerns and experiences of paediatric specialists. It also captures the key elements of the broader phenomenon, which means it will have significance and impact beyond this specific context for other medical specialities where wearable sensors and IoT technologies are developing. This project explores the systems currently available to consumers and patients, the adequacy of regulation by the Therapeutic Goods Administration, security of data, and perceptions of clinicians and family using wearable health devices to monitor and manage diabetes, in particular, hybrid closed loop systems.
