The National Office of Clinical Audit (NOCA) announces the publication of the National Paediatric Diabetes Audit Feasibility Study Report.
This study recommends the development of a National Audit of T1DM, with a three-phase approach.
- Phase 1 includes all paediatric Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus patients aged under 16 years who attend the 19 paediatric centres nationally.
- Phase 2 involves extending the audit to include affected young adults aged 16-25 years.
- Phase 3 will incorporate all patients with Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus nationally.
The proposal to develop a National Paediatric Diabetes Audit in Ireland is to be welcomed as an important step in delivering a high-quality service to children and young people (CYP) and their families.
A press release issued on May 10th 2022 by NOCA wished to thank Diabetes Ireland for contributing seed funding to produce this report.
