Identifying Quality Indicator of DKA Management and Regular Feedback Improve Acute Diabetes Care

Summary

To improve the management of diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) and develop condition-specific key performance indicators for long-term monitoring of quality of care, this work focused on time-to-resolution of DKA. Adopting this focus and then initiating changes to achieve it led to a reduction of resolution time of DKA on average from 22 hours to 7.4 hours, which translated into savings of over £32,000 per year for the Trust and could have a still wider impact if rolled-out on a national scale.
