Code of Conduct
The Australian Diabetes Educators Association (ADEA) is the leading organisation for health professionals providing diabetes education and care.
Professional conduct refers to the way in which a person behaves while acting in a professional capacity. The ADEA Code of Conduct sets the minimum standards expected of the diabetes educator. It provides a framework for, but is not limited to, their:
- clinical practice and competency
- engagement with the ADEA
- respect of client’s choices
- collaboration with other health professionals
The Code of Conduct is a fundamental ADEA standard designed also for an audience beyond diabetes educators, including people requiring or receiving diabetes education, other health professionals and organisations and the wider community.
