Promoting Excellence in Diabetes Care


National Association of Diabetes Centres

The National Association of Diabetes Centres (NADC) is a national collective of organisations that are involved either directly or indirectly in diabetes services and care. The NADC was established to explore mechanisms and implement strategies for improving the standard of care for people with, or at risk of diabetes. NADC member organisations take a leadership role in developing the appropriate networks in their areas in order to achieve this outcome.

Our Goal

To facilitate and promote improved standards of diabetes care through the implementation of evidence-based policies and procedures. The development of national standards and practice of auditing and benchmarking activities are vital to achieving this goal.

Structure of the NADC

The NADC was an organisation established in 1994 by the Australian Diabetes Society (ADS) and the Australian Diabetes Educators Association (ADEA). The two incorporated professional organisations held joint responsibility of the NADC until June 2014. The ADS now holds sole responsibility for its operations and the NADC is a division of the ADS.
