The National Diabetes Inpatient Audit (NaDIA) measures on one day the quality of diabetes care provided to all 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. 188 out of 193 hospital sites known to be eligible for NaDIA took part in the 2019 audit (97 per cent).
The audit sets out to measure the quality of diabetes care provided to people with diabetes while they are admitted to hospital, by answering the following questions:
Did diabetes management minimise the risk of avoidable complications?
Did harm result from the inpatient stay?
Was patient experience of the inpatient stay favourable?
Has the quality of care and patient feedback changed since NaDIA 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2015, 2016 and 2017?
