ABCD Nationwide FreeStyle Libre Audit – New Data Deadline - 2nd October 2019

Author: 
Professor Thozhukat Sathyabalan, Clinical Lead, ABCD Nationwide FSL Audit
Date of the announcement: 
Wednesday, 4 September, 2019

This next deadline of October 2 for data submission to the ABCD nationwide FreeStyle Libre audit has been set with the aim of achieving a data analysis with a view to submitting an abstract from the audit for submission to Diabetes UK Professional Conference 2020.  Please submit as much data as possible before the deadline – use the online tool at http://freestyle.patientaudit.co.uk/ .

We are especially keen for people to enter follow up data on their patients. Data collection will continue beyond this date, though October 2 is an important milestone.

To register for the audit if you have not already done so use: https://abcd.care/application-join-abcd-nationwide-freestyle-libre-audit...

Centres may analyse their own data (you will be sent video tutorials on how to do this later this week) and this is an excellent project for a junior doctor or medical student and of course DSN’s and medical secretaries and indeed anyone involved in the management of diabetes may wish to be involved.

As with all previous ABCD nationwide audits, all contributors will be acknowledged in all the outputs, including, of course, the paper which we plan to write during November.

Further enquiries may be made to the ABCD nationwide audits database administrator of the project, Melissa Cull.

With best wishes on behalf of ABCD:

Prof Thozhukat Sathyapalan
Dr Emma Wilmot
Dr Chris Walton
