Evidence to Improve Care

Diabetes (Prediabetes and Type 2)

Care for People of All Ages

This quality standard addresses care for children and adults who are at risk of developing prediabetes or type 2 diabetes or who already have a diagnosis of either. It does not address the prevention of type 2 diabetes in the general population, although it does provide guidance on risks and lifestyle factors that may affect the progression from prediabetes to type 2 diabetes.

This quality standard applies to all settings, including inpatient hospital care, correctional facilities, primary care, community care, specialist care, home care, hospital outpatient clinics, and long-term care.

This quality standard does not include care for pregnant people with type 2 diabetes. For a quality standard that addresses care for people with type 1 or type 2 diabetes who become pregnant, or people diagnosed with gestational diabetes, please refer to the Diabetes in Pregnancy quality standard.

Thank you for your comments and feedback. The consultation period has now ended.

The two guides below are in draft form. Please check back here in a few months for the finalized guides and for a variety of other resources related to this standard.
