Congratulations to Angela Hargreaves and Pam Dyson for winning the Patient Care Pathway – Adults category at the highly regarded Quality in Care Awards held on the 12 October.

Their entry “Improving Diabetes Competencies in Dieticians” addressed the need for diabetes-specific education for dieticians. They developed a diabetes competency training programme for dieticians working in the acute and community teams in Oxfordshire, which 75% of dieticians have since attended.

Judges comment: “The judges recognised this innovative programme that addresses a clear need. They were impressed with comments in the entry that showed how much established professionals had learned from this programme and noted that the ever-changing nature of diabetes practice makes training like this essential. They saw great potential for taking this programme forward."
