There are many national and international sources of credible and evidence-based information about diabetes education and clinical care. The ADEA has compiled a list of websites which our members may consider visiting, but we recognise that there are many other sources, including websites, of value to diabetes educators. Therefore, to suggest inclusion of a specific site, please contact the ADEA National Office to have your recommendation considered.
