What percentage of people registered with diabetes are offered and attend a structured education course?


What percentage of people registered with diabetes are offered and attend a structured education course?

Offered structured education: type 1 diabetes


In England and Wales, recorded offers of structured education, with no time limit, decreased for those diagnosed in 2019. This may be a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

It is noted that offered dates can sometimes change between audit periods, suggesting that structured education is being re-offered if declined initially. 

Footnotes:

  1. Offered structured education within 2 years of diagnosis’ data is not reported for people diagnosed with diabetes in 2019 – this is because the 2020-21 NDA data (latest audit period) ends in March 2021, meaning that anyone diagnosed after March 2019 would not have the full 2 year opportunity to be offered structured education.

Offered structured education: type 2 and other diabetes


In England and Wales, recorded offers of structured education, with no time limit, decreased for those diagnosed in 2019. This may be a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

It is noted that offered dates can sometimes change between audit periods, suggesting that structured education is being re-offered if declined initially.

Attended structured education: type 1 diabetes


It is believed that poor recording means that the apparently low rates of attendance at a structured education programme are an underestimation. In England, recorded attendance rates within one year of diagnosis in 2019 have increased, and in Wales they have decreased.

2. Attendance at structured education forms one of the indicators in the CCG improvement and assessment framework 2018-19.

It is believed that poor recording means that the apparently low rates of attendance at a structured education programme are an underestimation. In England and Wales, recorded attendance rates within two years have increased, and attendance rates within 1 year and with no time limit have decreased.
