National Diabetes Audit (2013 – 2014 & 2014 – 2015) – Report 1 care processes and treatment targets
The National Diabetes Audit is a major national clinical audit, which measures the effectiveness of diabetes healthcare against NICE Clinical Guidelines and NICE Quality Standards, in England and Wales. The NDA collects and analyses data for use by a range of stakeholders to drive changes and improvements in the quality of services and health outcomes for people with diabetes.
The National Diabetes Audit (NDA) answers four key questions based on the diabetes National Service Framework (NSF):
- Is everyone with diabetes diagnosed and recorded on a practice diabetes register?
- What percentage of people registered with diabetes received the nine NICE key processes of diabetes care?
- What percentage of people registered with diabetes achieved NICE defined treatment targets for glucose control, blood pressure and blood cholesterol?
- For people with registered diabetes what are the rates of acute and long term complications (disease outcomes)?
