Diabetes awards programme launches

QiC Diabetes 2014 premiered at Diabetes UK conference
QiC Diabetes 2014

The fourth Quality in Care (QiC) Diabetes programme was launched yesterday at the Diabetes UK Professional Conference 2014 in Liverpool.

The programme, which recognises, rewards and shares good practice in diabetes management, education and patient care, is now open for entry to teams and individuals working within the field of diabetes.

Run by PMLiVE publisher the PMGroup, the programme comprises both an awards event and subsequent dissemination opportunities, and has the endorsement, support and active participation of key stakeholders, including Sanofi, ABCD and Diabetes UK.

Joint working and collaboration are key to the QiC Programme and entries are invited from the NHS, industry, private sector and patient organisations to be reviewed by a panel of judges made up of nurses, commissioners, clinicians, patient representatives and leading industry professionals.

QiC Diabetes has so far celebrated the achievements of more than 100 projects from NHS organisations across the UK in a variety of categories reflecting priorities in diabetes.

Attendees at the Diabetes UK conference were able to hear from previous winners of QiC Diabetes, including Joanne Oliver who led the DAWN (Diabetes Appointments via webcam in Newham) project, which used digital technology to provide accessible and cost-effective diabetes care to hard-to-reach groups.

Visit QiC Connect for case studies of initiatives from previous years, each of which is improving the quality of care for people with diabetes and recognising good health outcomes for patients.

Simon O'Neill, director of clinical intelligence and professional liaison, Diabetes UK said: “Diabetes UK is once again delighted to be able to collaborate on these important awards. They highlight and promote the exciting and innovative approaches that are being implemented around the UK to improve the care of people with diabetes.”
