The National Diabetes Inpatient Audit (NaDIA) measures the quality of diabetes care provided to people with diabetes while they are admitted to hospital whatever the cause, and aims to support quality improvement. Data is collected and submitted by hospital staff in England and Wales.
There are two elements to this audit:
National Diabetes Inpatient Audit – Hospital Characteristics 2018
This report uses the Hospital Characteristics survey to answer the following questions:
Have staffing levels for inpatient diabetes teams increased since 2015?
Has take-up of care improvement initiatives and healthcare technologies for diabetes care increased since 2013?
What additional transformation funding has been provided for inpatient diabetes teams in 2018?
Please note: 2018 was a designated NaDIA Quality Improvement Collaborative (QIC) year. To reduce the burden on QIC participants, this collection has focused on the Hospital Characteristics survey only. The Bedside Audit and Patient Experience surveys will be repeated for 2019.
National Diabetes Inpatient Audit – Harms
This is a new continuous collection of serious inpatient harms that only affect people with diabetes. Collection started on 1 May 2018. The objective of this audit is to help reduce the rates of serious inpatient harms by collecting and providing case-mix adjusted benchmarked feedback to NHS hospital trusts to inform quality improvement work.
