Quality in Care's 2015 diabetes programme launches at Diabetes UK

Now open for entries to celebrate best practice in NHS diabetes care

QiC (Quality in Care) Diabetes 2015

The fifth annual Quality in Care (QiC) Diabetes programme is now open for entry to NHS teams and individuals working within the field of diabetes. 

Launched today at the Diabetes UK Professional Conference at the ExCeL Centre in London, QiC Diabetes comprises an awards event and subsequent dissemination opportunities in order to recognise, reward and share good practice in diabetes management, education and patient care.

It is run by PMLiVE publisher the PMGroup and part of an expanding portfolio of healthcare programmes that currently span oncology, hepatitis C and anti-coagulation

QiC Diabetes has so far celebrated the achievements of more than 125 projects from NHS organisations across the UK in a variety of categories reflecting priorities in diabetes, a condition that is diagnosed in 3.2 million people in the UK.

The programme is sponsored by Sanofi, though the company has no editorial control over any of its contents, and QiC Diabetes' supporters include the Primary Care Diabetes Society (PCDS)Training Research and Education for Nurses in Diabetes (TREND) and Diabetes UK.

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.”

Dr Andrew Hockey, medical director of diabetes at Sanofi UK & Ireland, said: “Sanofi Diabetes are pleased to support the QiC Programme again in 2015 and to be part of recognising and valuing those individuals, teams, Trusts and partnerships who demonstrate quality in care for their patients with diabetes.  

“We are especially keen to see evidence of quality improvement in the six dimensions of quality - safety, effectiveness, efficiency, patient-centred, equitable and timely.”
