The National Diabetes Inpatient Audit (NaDIA) measures the quality of diabetes care provided to 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 and Wales. The NaDIA audit is part of the National Diabetes Audit (NDA) portfolio within the National Clinical Audit and Patient Outcomes Programme (NCAPOP), commissioned by the Healthcare Quality Improvement Partnership (HQIP).
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 and 2016?
