Report on transition of care between childhood and adulthood for people with diabetes
A new report that charts the care of young people with Type-1 diabetes as they move from paediatric to adult services was published for the first time recently (23 June 2017) by NHS Digital1.
The National Diabetes Transition Audit (NDTA) links datasets from the adult and paediatric national diabetes audits and examines whether the transition between childhood and adulthood has an effect on care.
The report includes figures on the percentage of people who are receiving the nine NICE recommended care processes2, as well as the percentage of people who have met the NICE treatment targets3 for diabetes care.
The report also examines how young people with Type-1 diabetes are monitored against risk factors4 associated with diabetes care as well as Diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) inpatient admissions5.
Information has been collated between 2003 and 2014 from the National Diabetes Audit (NDA) - adults and the National Paediatric Diabetes Audit (NPDA).

- Blood pressure, serum cholesterol along with checking for early evidence of kidney damage should all be monitored as they identify people at increased risk of complications.
