  • 8. The Key NADC Activities: 1. Australian National Diabetes Audit (ANDA) formerly ANDIAB  The Australian National Diabetes Audit (ANDA) formerly ANDIAB has been a key NADC project that relies on member centres collecting clinical data on a biennial basis  AQSMA (Australian Quality Self Management Audit) formerly ANDIAB2, collects data specifically related to diabetes education and self-care on a biennial basis.  Site reports are provided to enable participating centres to benchmark their own data against that of others and with the NHMRC guidelines  These are important quality assurance activities which promote continuous improvement in the standard of service provided by Diabetes Centres.  In 2013, 30 Centres participated
