Describe your practice setting and location.

The Clinic for Athletes With Type 1 Diabetes (CATOD) team is based at the Steno Diabetes Center Aarhus, Aarhus University Hospital, in Aarhus, Denmark.


Describe the specific quality gap addressed through the initiative.

The goal of the clinic is to help athletes with type 1 diabetes exercise at the same level as their healthy peers so they can compete and achieve high rank positions in competitions. This is done by assisting them in improving their diabetes management skills in relation to physical training and competitions, which also supports their efforts to enhance their sporting performance. There has been a lack of existing mechanisms through which athletes with type 1 diabetes can network. Within this clinic, athletes with type 1 diabetes are brought together, allowing them to share peer support, tips, and tricks, which they have found very valuable.
