An independent, not for profit health care organisation has released new guidance on how to manage diabetes.
Healthcare professionals can now access two information standards created by the Professional Record Standards Body (PRSB) on diabetes management.
This update ensures that essential diabetes recommendations can easily be found in one place online.
Experts have said that standardised diabetes data is beneficial for healthcare teams when they are making important care decisions.
The two standards developed by the PRSB include:
- The Diabetes Information Record Standard – defines the information needed to support a person’s diabetes management. It includes information that could be recorded by health and care professionals or the person themselves that is relevant to the diabetes care of the person and should be shared between different care providers.
- The Diabetes Self-Management Standard – This defines information that could be recorded by the person (or their carer) at home (either using digital apps or medical devices) and shared with health and care professionals.
Commissioned by NHS England and NHS Improvement, the PRSB produces standards to share diabetes advice between primary and secondary care settings.
