ABCD nationwide audit programme in the future

ABCD has learned from its
previous ABCD nationwide audits of GLP1 receptor agonists, SGLT2 inhibitors, insulin degludec, IDegLira and most recently the FreeStyle Libre. It has learned the best ways of undertaking successful nationwide audits. It has also realised how much clinically useful information can be obtained from the audit information to improve patient care. We are constantly considering possible future nationwide audits, both of new diabetes therapies and of devices. 2020 should see the launch of an audit of testosterone in men with type two diabetes and of an audit of Do-It-Yourself Artificial Pancreas system and, in due course, of commercially available closed loop systems.
