National Paediatric Diabetes Audit - Data submission for 2010/11
New web platform and data collection for 2011/12
A new Electronic Web Platform has been developed by the RCPCH which will allow data to be entered for each patient in your clinic. Centres will be able to either upload their NPDA data in CSV format (as in previous years) from Twinkle.NET, Diamond and System 1 databases which will be fully integrated with the new web platform. Please be advised that the 'standalone' version of Twinkle does not currently support the new Electronic Web Platform.
The web platform will allow multiple data entries on different dates during the audit year for single variables (eg HbA1c). This will allow the audit to present a fuller picture of diabetes outcomes.
The new RCPCH Electronic Web Platform will be open to all centres between 02 July 2012 and 31 October 2012. The 2011/12 NPDA will follow a simple four-step process:
Step 1: Obtaining Caldicott Guardian Approval and Webplatform Registration – to be actioned asap
Due to the introduction of an updated dataset, centres intending to participate in this year's audit are advised that renewed Caldicott Guardian approval is required. Units are asked to complete awhich should then be sent on to your Trust's Caldicott Guardian along with the (PDF, 62KB). Your Caldicott Guardian should then sign the relevant part of the Webplatform Registration Form before returning this to the RCPCH before 29 June 2012 by fax on 0207 092 6194. Please keep a copy for your own records. Please see the latest (PDF, 38KB) for your unit's registration status as of 22 June 2012.
Step 2: Data Submission: 02 July - 28 September, 2012
NPDA 2011/12 Workbooks will be available to download here and will also be distributed to all centres before the end of June. These Workbooks will contain full details on how to use the new RCPCH Electronic Web Platform and submit your data for 2011/12. Centres will be asked to submit their data in its entirety by 28 September 2012.
Step 3: Data Quality Check by RCPCH: 01 October - 15 October, 2012
After the data is submitted, the RCPCH will provide each centre with an individual Data Quality Report. Centres will receive these reports by 15 October 2012. If, however, you find that your centre has finished submitting your NPDA data prior to 01 October 2012 and would like to receive your Data Quality Report earlier, you may request this by emailing email@example.com.
Step 4: Corrections by the centres (if required): October 2012
Following receipt of your Data Quality Report, centres will then have the opportunity to rectify any data quality issues highlighted in the report and re-submit your centre's data using the webplatform. This process must be completed by 31 October 2012 and it will not be possible to amend your data further after this date.
