Dr David Strain
Senior Clinical Lecturer, Diabetes and Vascular Research Centre,
University of Exeter Medical School
David is currently a Senior Clinical Lecturer at the University of Exeter Medical School, where he was successful in achieving a National Institute of Healthcare Research Clinical Senior Lecturer Award Fellowship.
His primary interest is individualising care for people with diabetes, particularly the older adults. In meeting this aim, he has run programs comparing patient’s interpretations of their quality of life and that of their relatives, in decisions about their health. He was the global lead on a study determining the effectiveness of individualised treatment targets in elderly patients with diabetes, and is currently chairing the steering committee of a global project in association with the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) called ‘Time 2 Do More in Diabetes™’ targeting clinical inertia.
