Now that data collection for the DISCOVER study has come to a close, the Scientific Committee met to review the final 3-year data set. Discussions centred on congress abstracts for 2020, future publications and the inclusion of DISCOVER data in the 9th edition of the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) Atlas. Scientific Committee member Professor Linong Ji highlighted how, through collaboration with the IDF, DISCOVER will have a significant impact on the global management of type 2 diabetes.
Looking to the future, the Scientific Committee spoke about the progress made and the challenges faced by the DISCOVER Global Registry, a standalone initiative dedicated to the long-term collection of data from people with type 2 diabetes worldwide. The committee encourages all DISCOVER investigators to engage with the registry to continue collecting invaluable patient data.
