The National Diabetes Strategy has identified, as a key priority, the development and implementation of national evidence based guidelines for the prevention, detection and management of type 2 diabetes guidelines. 

A consortium of Baker IDI Heart and Diabetes Institute (Baker IDI) and The George Institute, has been contracted by the Australian Government Department of Health to review and update four type 2 diabetes guidelines for clinicians and other health professionals. 

Other NHMRC approved guidelines are availaible at  http://www.nhmrc.gov.au/guidelines
