ACP Diabetes Portal

ACP's Diabetes Portal

ACP's Diabetes Portal



The ACP Diabetes Portal, a site that was developed to assist the entire clinical care team in ensuring high-quality care of patients with diabetes, has recently been redesigned to add additional features. Visitors to the site can now rate the nearly 500 different resources for overall value as well as post comments and participate in threaded discussions about a variety of issues related to diabetes care. In addition to these enhancements, the site is continually updated with new research articles, guidelines, clinical tools, and point-of-care decision support.

Vignettes should be no more than 1,000 words. Submissions can be anonymous. Samples and submissions are available online.

ACP QUEST

ACP Quest

ACP Quest



ACP QUEST now offers Closing the Gap: Diabetes Care, an online, practice-based, team-oriented quality improvement program dedicated to teaching physician practice teams how to create systems change using the chronic care model and to implement quality improvement plans in a medical setting. A customized “to do” list organizes work through each step of the process, such as entry of abstracted patient data, input of progress reports, and receipt of feedback on your performance. Data, reports, and a plethora of interactive resources are easily accessible and manageable from within this single system. This module is being made available free through an unrestricted educational grant from Novo Nordisk and participants are being accepted on a rolling basis. The Closing the Gap programs have been accepted by the American Board of Internal Medicine as eligible for Part 4 Maintenance of Certification credit. Physicians are also awarded traditional and practice-based CME.
