Reducing Sitting Time in Type 2 Diabetes Scholarships, Australian Catholic University

Postgraduate scholarships to undertake research on physical activity and Type 2 Diabetes

Diabetes is a National Health Priority area and the sixth leading cause of death in Australia. Currently 280 Australians develop diabetes every day – that is one person every five minutes. Type 2 Diabetes (T2D) prevalence is especially high among middle-aged and older (45-65y) workers – up to 7.7% – with a substantial impact on work productivity, risk of absenteeism and inability to work.

Diabetes treatment currently costs the healthcare system more than $14 billion each year, and the increased frequency of complications associated with poor glycaemic control in those with T2D contributes substantially to ill health, disability and early death.

Against this background, new research capacities and controlled-trial evidence are now needed to take forward a paradigm shift in how T2D prevention and management is understood and implemented. Moderate-vigorous intensity physical activity (MVPA) has long been – and remains – a mainstay of diabetes prevention and management. However, 20 years of initiatives to promote its uptake have not led to changes in population prevalence, and exercise adherence is a major challenge for those at risk of developing T2D and for T2D patients. Sedentary behaviour (put simply, too much sitting as distinct from too little exercise) is a newly-identified element of chronic disease risk, with implications for T2D.

There are untested benefits for T2D management through reducing and breaking up sitting time.

Two scholarships will be available. We welcome applications from individuals with a background in:

  • Public Health
  • Physical education/Exercise science
  • Diabetes Research
  • Workplace/Population Health
  • Sedentary Behaviour/Sitting Time
  • Nutrition
  • Another discipline related to the project
