The National Paediatric Diabetes Audit (NPDA) wants to make it easier for parents to understand about the quality of diabetes care for children.
What is the NPDA?
All children and young people with diabetes in England and Wales should receive a certain level of care, as set out by NICE guidelines. The NPDA (National Paediatric Diabetes Audit) collects data on if this care is a reality. And carries out a survey to find out more about patient and parent experience. The information helps lead to improve quality of care for children and young people.
Each year the NPDA write a report for parents and carers to help them understand the care their child is getting.
But they want to make the results of the audit easier for parents to understand and find. We’re working with the NPDA to help them find out more about what parents want.
Attend a workshop and share your views
We’re looking for parents of children with diabetes to attend a one day workshop at our London office on Saturday 3 March, 11am – 2pm.
You don’t need to have heard of the NPDA or know anything about the work they do. You just need to have an interest in knowing more about the quality of diabetes care that children receive.
As a thank you for your time we’ll give participants a £10 voucher. We’ll cover all reasonable travel expenses and lunch will be provided.
If this sounds like something you’d like to help with, or want to know more about, we’d love to hear from you.
