Association of Diabetes Care & Education Specialists



ADCES Diabetes Research

The aim of ADCES research is to critically examine the value that diabetes care and education specialists and diabetes education add to improved clinical measures, enhanced patient outcomes, and improved medical costs.  The Association pursues research opportunities to contribute to the evidence base; expand opportunities for diabetes care and education specialists; and improve member awareness, comprehension, and analysis of relevant scientific information.

In support of this aim, The ADCES Research Committee drives several initiatives:

Systematic Reviews

Identify the evidence and gaps in research around the impact of diabetes care and education. The goals for these projects are to support collaborative research across academic institutions identifying the impact and value of the role of the diabetes care and education specialist. The ADCES research committee is currently reviewing the evidence for three systematic reviews looking at diabetes care and education as it relates to:

  1. Cost
  2. Technology
  3. Quality

ADCES/CBDCE Mentored Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Integrated Diabetes Management

ADCES recognizes the need to engage and support promising health services research scientists interested in integrating diabetes management for positive health outcomes. We recognize health services research is a collaborative approach to clinical research and requires a team of subject matter and methodological experts to train the next generation of diabetes care and education specialists.
