SuMMiT-D has 5 work packages:

WORK PACKAGE 1 

Look at previous research to learn as much as possible from what people have done before

WORK PACKAGE 2

Link up data from clinical care, identify helpful messages and ways to present them, develop a pilot system to help people use medicines and test it in small groups to be sure it is acceptable

WORK PACKAGE 3

Test the system in a group of people to see how it fits into the day-to-day lives of people using it and see which sort of messages are most helpful

WORK PACKAGE 4

Test the system with people receiving usual care in a large trial (958 patients). The main outcomes would be:

(i) Levels of diabetes control

(ii) Whether medicines were taken as planned

(iii) Satisfaction with treatment

Costs will also be reported 

WORK PACKAGE 5

Use new opportunities offered by digital technology to:

(i) Track the use people make of their medicines

(ii) Better identify those who might stop their medicines or not take them regularly and

(iii) Offer better information and support to people with diabetes in the use of their medicines

Look for ways to make use of this research for other conditions and for people who have more than one long-term condition
