This is a wonderful opportunity for us and a great acknowledgement by government of the important work being done by the NADC. I encourage everyone who has been invited to attend

Registration is still open for those who have received invitations to BPDC, so if you haven’t yet registered, get your registrations forms in quickly. I hope to see you there!
I’d also like to welcome Nikki Wallis, who is providing support to the NADC with ongoing projects. She brings with her experience in healthcare, policy and strategy, as well as corporate communications— welcome Nikki!
Finally, our review of the NADC accreditation is approaching completion and I am eagerly anticipating the official release in October, when the new version will be available for members to trial.

Further updates will be provided over coming months on the progress of the new accreditation, benefits to members and information on how to apply.

I look forward to sharing this news with you and much more next month.

BPDC 2016
This year’s Best Practice Diabetes Centres (BPDC) Symposium is approaching and invited members are urged to register fast to secure their place! Invitations have been sent and only financial and active NADC members will be eligible to attend.

BPDC will be held on October 22nd & 23rd at Sydney’s Park Royal in Darling Harbour. The program is available at click here

Share Your Tools
One of the outcomes of BPDC 2015 was to develop a repository of shared resources for diabetes centres.

To make this a valuable and significant resource for members, we need all centres to participate. This also earns your organisation eligibility towards attending the next Best Practice Diabetes Centres (BPDC) Symposium.

We are after diabetes specific resources including policies and procedures, clinical pathways, and auditing tools.
2016 Annual Scientific Meeting
We’re counting down with only days to go! The much-awaited 2016 ADS-ADEA Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM) is taking place on the Gold Coast from August 23-26.
Don’t miss the NADC symposium, ‘Show us the money! Finding funding where there seems none to be found’, on Wednesday from 11am-1pm..
In the current climate, there is growing pressure on diabetes organisations to find even more funding for prevention and management initiatives and services.

The NADC symposium will explore tips on how to fund projects including a pump clinic and telehealth service, along with secrets on how to create funding from nothing, and the impact of technology on health funding.
ANDA 2015 results will be also be announced at the symposium, along with an overview of NADC achievements over the last year and our exciting plans for the future.
I am very pleased to announce that The Hon. Sussan Ley will be attending and presenting at the event. This is a wonderful opportunity for us and a great acknowledgement by government of the important work being done by the NADC. I encourage everyone who has been invited to attend

We hope to see you there!
BioGrid Diabetes Database
Applications are now open for a one-off grant supporting the purchase and installation of the diabetes clinical database from BioGrid for one year.

The BioGrid Australia Diabetes Clinical and Research Database is a web-based application that enables the management of patients’ diabetes diagnosis, treatment and follow-up information.

Comprehensive data-sets can be collected including demographic details, symptoms and complications, pathology test results, medications, and gestational diabetes.

The aim of the national database is to assist centres in the provision of diabetes care, auditing and benchmarking.

It is expected that after one year, centres will enter into an agreement with BioGrid. The application form and information are available at LINK 1 and LINK 2.
