Pre-Test for Diabetes Standards of Care and Quality Improvement
The American Diabetes Association creates new Clinical Practice Recommendations every 5 years.
Diabetes can be diagnosed by hemoglobin A1c of 6.5 or greater.
The ADA recommendation for hemoglobin A1c for most patients with diabetes is <7.0
People with diabetes only need to see their doctor when they are sick.
Quality Improvement can and should be done by every member of the health care team.
