Description of submission
To determine whether people with Type 1 diabetes participating in an intensive structured education programme benefit both quantitatively and qualitatively.Objectives
The audit examined glycaemic control (HbA1c), quality of life (using the Paid Areas in Diabetes [PAID] scale) and body weight changes (kilograms) over a five year period.Context
This was the first audit of the SADIE programme to be completed. From the initiation of SADIE, the facilitators had collected audit data as advised by the national Diabetes Education Network (www.diabetes-education.net). This Network links together providers of structured education for people with diabetes across the United KingdomMethods
The audit was completed within existing resources. The audit is fully described in the Journal of Diabetes Nursing, Vol 15, No 9, 2011 (SADIE: Type 1 diabetes education in Eastbourne). See attached supporting information for further detail.Results and evaluation
The results and discussion can be found in the attached supporting information.Key learning points
Audit takes time and perseverance, especially when there is no additional time allocated to the task. It has to be 'fitted around' the individual's usual workload. As a result, the outcomes take time to be determined, discussed and then fully documented. The audit was conducted by two key members of the diabetes multi-disciplinary team which was beneficial from a skill mix point of view. The audit attracted other personnel as assistance was needed with the statistical analysis. The importance of good team working was demonstrated in order to provide all of the skills needed to complete the audit.
