Quality Indicator Set for Diabetes (QISD)

Description

Quality improvement interventions for type 2 diabetes are common, although evaluations of these interventions have been unstandardized and lacked rigor. To address this problem, the ACHORD Group led an effort to establish a standardized Quality Indicators Set for Diabetes. This minimum set of indicators is intended to be used in concert with the CDA Clinical Practice Guidelines, to aid in the evaluation and comparison of different implementation strategies and quality improvement interventions. This set of quality indicators may be useful for both translational research in diabetes as well as assessments of quality of diabetes care by health care systems. This work was published in two companion papers in the September 2005 issue of the Canadian Journal of Diabetes .

We first conducted a of the literature to identify quality of care indicators used in controlled studies of quality improvement interventions for adults with type 2 diabetes.

We then used standard consensus methods to develop a Quality Indicator Set for Diabetes for the evaluation of quality improvement efforts for adults with type 2 diabetes. Our consensus panel included leading diabetes clinicians and health services researchers in Canada .
