ANDIAB2 2010: Quality Assurance of Patient Practices and Diabetes Centre Care

How the project improves the care of patients with diabetes

Page last updated: 16 May 2012

The results of ANDIAB2 will be expected to provide an indication of the patient care practices and the process of care found amongst participating Centres throughout Australia. There will likely be wide variation in these findings which may inform areas of practice or knowledge deficit amongst patients, or the need for service development or topic revision regarding the specific examples found. For instance – there may by poor carriage of hypoglycaemia therapy that needs to be reinforced or a significant degree of knowledge deficit identified that warrants increased attention by a particular Centre. Sharing this information in a Final Pooled Report should assist in identifying processes that could be adopted to improve education and clinical care which [once implemented] should result in improved outcomes for people attending those Centres.
