The National Diabetes Inpatient Audit (NaDIA) is commissioned by the Healthcare Quality Improvement Partnership (HQIP) and delivered by the Health and Social Care Information Centre, working with Diabetes UK.
The National Diabetes Inpatient Audit is a snapshot audit of diabetes inpatient care. In September 2015 the National Diabetes Inpatient Audit was conducted in hospitals across England and Wales, collecting data on characteristics of the hospital including staffing structures, patient clinical data and patient experience information.
The audit looks at the following areas:
• 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?
The Annual Report provides a summary of the 2015 audit findings for England and Wales, and where possible compares to the 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013 audit findings. There was no audit collection or report in 2014, so 2014 data is not available. The audit is supported by the Hospital Level Analysis, which provides results at individual site level.
This publication was produced in two parts: the comparative hospital-level analysis was published on 08 March 2016 and the National Report was published on 23 June 2016. On 23 June 2016, the presentation outlining the key findings from the NaDIA 2015 audit that was presented by the NaDIA clinical lead, Gerry Rayman, at the Diabetes UK Professional Conference 2016, was also added to this release.
