Does DAFNE still work with the advent of technology? The DAFNE programme performs an annual audit of patient outcomes from across all centres with paired HbA1c data (baseline pre-course and at 12 months post course), this year we had paired data for 1,892 (80%) of patients that completed their DAFNE course in 2021, either remotely, or face-to face.
These audits provide on-going evidence of the biomedical benefits to people with type 1 and a quality assurance process contributing to the high standard of diabetes education to which we all aspire.
