Message from the CEO

The NADC office doors have been flung wide open welcoming in 2017. All the NADC team came back well rested and energised and have hit the ground not just running, but sprinting!

We have been delighted to find many NADC accreditation applications already completed. So we know that a significant amount of reflection has occurred by participating centres even over the Christmas and New Year's break.

Final updates have also been completed for the Centres of Excellence criteria, which we have launched ahead of schedule. More details on that in the newsletter below.

We are very excited to have expanded our social media presence and encourage you to join us on all our channels to stay up-to-date with all things NADC!

Plans are also underway for a new NADC meeting! We will keep you posted, but we hope to host an Advanced Technologies and Treatments for Diabetes meeting in October in Melbourne, so stay tuned!

And we continue to work with our sponsors to find ways in which NADC projects can not only be sustained but grow, bringing about improvements in the resources we provide to our members.

We hope you are as excited about 2017 as we are and we look forward to working with you all!  

Get NADC accredited & boost your centre's reputation
The NADC Accreditation Standards 2.0 is now available to members.

Accreditation is not mandatory, however achieving NADC accreditation entitles centres to a range of benefits including:
· Recognition as a best practice centre
· Knowledge-sharing and benchmarking
· Quality and service improvement
· Improved status and reputation
· Business expansion through recognition as an  NADC accredited centre

The NADC accreditation standard is the only one of its kind to combine three important areas of quality improvement including governance, clinical and educational indicators.
