COVID-19 has changed the way care is delivered to people with long term conditions which is exemplified by the treatment of people with diabetes. The extraordinary work undertaken during the unprecedented pressure of COVID-19 will be reflected in the 2021 awards. We are therefore focusing QiC to recognise the transformation of services and care provision which has been undertaken in response to these unprecedented times.
Are you involved in diabetes education for healthcare professionals?
What are you doing to better inform and empower children, young people and emerging adults, and adults living with diabetes and their families/carers in response to the COVID-19 pandemic?
This award has two entry sections:
- Initiatives for the educational needs of HCPs to advance skills and knowledge to support effective and efficient management of children, young people and emerging adults, and adults with diabetes in response to the COVID-19 pandemic
- Initiatives to educate and empower children, young people and emerging adults, and adults living with diabetes and their families/carers to self-manage and stay as healthy as possible in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Programmes may include structured education, other education initiatives, influencing clinical, psychological or social well-being and are welcomed from community or secondary settings, children and adult, with all types of diabetes.
Entries will be judged on five essential criteria: innovation, equality, diversity and variation, results, user feedback along with dissemination and sustainability.
