The first NaDIA-Harms report was published on Thursday 9 May 2019. It details participation and the number of harms, based on the six months of data collected between 1 May and 31 October 2018.
The objective of the harms collection is to reduce the rates of serious inpatient harms (severe hypoglycaemia, DKA/HHS, and new foot ulcer) by collecting and providing regular feedback to hospital trusts to inform Quality Improvement work on a monthly basis.
All acute hospitals in England, with diabetic inpatients are eligible to participate. If in doubt please contact us.
The Welsh government decided not to participate in the first year of the harms collection. Consequently, health services in Wales are not eligible to participate. We will inform all possible candidates as soon as there is a change in this situation.
