The third Quality in Care (QiC) Diabetes programme launched at this year’s Diabetes UK Professional Conference in Manchester.
QiC Diabetes recognises, rewards and shares good practice in diabetes management, education and patient care.
The programme is partnered by Sanofi and supported by the Association of British Clinical Diabetologists, Diabetes UK, NHS Diabetes, Primary Care Diabetes Society, Training Research and Education for Nurses in Diabetes and the Young Diabetologists and Endocrinologists' Forum.
QiC Diabetes 2013 comprises both an awards event and subsequent dissemination opportunities for finalists to share good practice and demonstrate benefits and adaptability of initiatives to a wider healthcare audience, including presenting at the annual Diabetes UK Professional Conference.
Diabetes was chosen as the first therapy area to be covered by QiC in 2011 due to the increasing need to find the best way to tackle the social and economic burden of the condition which now affects 2.9 million people in the UK. >
Simon O’Neill, Director of Health Intelligence and Professional Liaison, Diabetes UK, said: “Diabetes UK is delighted to continue its support of QiC Diabetes. The standard of entries from previous years was outstanding and has enabled us to share and learn from best practice in the field of diabetes care. We look forward to seeing even more examples of excellence through the third QiC Diabetes programme.”
“It’s great to represent educators across the country who everyday deliver high standards around structured education so that people with diabetes can self-manage their own condition. QiC Diabetes is such an opportunity to network and to hear about all of the innovative things that are going on across the country that we don’t get to hear about,” said Heather Daly, diabetes nurse consultant, Leicester Diabetes Centre, and winner of Outstanding Educator of the Year at QiC Diabetes 2012.
Entries are invited from the NHS and other healthcare systems, the private sector and patient organisations. Entries are not limited to the UK.
The Awards will take place at Sanofi’s Guildford headquarters on Thursday October 10, 2013.
“The NHS and its partners should be proud that each day sees delivery of the very best in diabetes care. QiC provides the opportunity to recognise, share and celebrate this excellence, and I'm proud that Sanofi Diabetes is once again supporting the awards. Following the success of last year's awards, I look forward to this year's event with keen anticipation,” said Dr Andrew Hockey, Diabetes Medical Director at Sanofi.
