NADC Membership

The National Association of Diabetes Centres (NADC) is the bridge and the linchpin between primary care services and the hospital, and this model is underpinned by the philosophy of shared care. The NADC is a national collective of Australian Diabetes Centres. Our goal is to ensure that the highest standard of care is delivered to people with diabetes through our member Services.

Renewals for all existing members are due January 1st each year.

Individuals

Many people have asked to become an individual member of the NADC. The aim of the NADC is to improve the ability of diabetes services, to deliver better health outcomes for all people with, or at risk of diabetes and to promote strategies for the management as well as the prevention of complications.

The NADC believes that this aim cannot be fully achieved by an individual health professional and requires the coordination and collaboration of a multidisciplinary team.

The NADC believe that very rarely does an individual work in a silo – but they are connected with other health professionals. For example, a CDE in private practice may use rooms at a GP practice or receive regular referrals from particular GP’s or endocrinologists. We at the NADC want to encourage the individual seeking NADC membership, to involve those who they regularly connect and collaborate with, to join together and sign up for NADC membership together.

This then allows all health professionals (not just an individual) within the service to have access to the many member benefits that NADC has to offer. It also promotes collaboration and networking and can encourage smoother referral pathways and transition for the person with diabetes.

So what are you waiting for? Now is your chance to take the opportunity to promote diabetes care amongst those that you regularly coordinate care with.

We’ve included resources below, that provide you with the information you may need to encourage others to ‘join forces’ with you to become an NADC member service.
