Join the new NDA Quality Improvement Collaborative for type 1 specialist services
The National Diabetes Audit introduced a quality improvement programme in 2017. Support has been provided to local healthcare teams in England and Wales to influence care and patient behaviours in order to improve outcomes for people living with diabetes.
ALL diabetes specialist teams in England and Wales are invited to participate in the collaboration to improve the care for people with type 1 diabetes. We will seek to implement NICE-recommended care and increase the use of insulin pumps.
The type 1 specialist service collaborative is currently open for application.
These QICs had for aims to:
• help people with type 1 diabetes keep their blood glucose levels within target
• reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease in people with type 2 diabetes.
A summary report for the type 1 and type 2 diabetes QICs was published in October 2002. There's also a report on the work conducted to enhance the use of National Diabetes Audit data by clinical networks.
2017- 2020 QICs
These QICs focused on 4 areas: care for inpatients, for pregnancy and pre-conception, foot care and transition from young people to adult diabetes services.
