Research output: Contribution to journalArticle (journal)peer-review


People with diabetes need to make important decisions about management of their condition on a day-to-day basis. To enable them to do so, structured education is now an integral part of diabetes care, both at diagnosis and on an ongoing basis. Providers are tasked with delivering high-quality diabetes education programmes that meet NICE criteria. This may be a prerequisite for commissioning structured education programmes in the future. Acquiring certification from the Quality Institute for Self Management Education and Training (QISMET) is a way of assuring the quality of a diabetes education programme. This article describes the experience of providers in achieving certification.
