DRWF has been awarded the ‘Information Standard’ accreditation, developed by the Department of Health, which certifies its diabetes information as being trustworthy and reliable for people with diabetes. The Information Standard scheme was developed to help the public easily identify trustworthy health and social care information.
Sarah Bone, Chief Executive DRWF says, ‘One of our main charitable activities is the provision of information to enable informed decision-making. It’s important that the people we provide information and support to are confident that our literature and advice is reliable and trustworthy. Having undergone a rigorous auditing process, we are proud to have achieved accreditation and see it as ‘mark’ of our commitment to the people we support’.
An organisation displaying the Information Standard quality mark has undergone a rigorous certification process to prove that they provide quality, evidence-based health and social care information. The Information Standard quality mark will now appear on the DRWF monthly newsletter, the Diabetes Wellness News and on the series of DRWF diabetes information leaflets so that recipients can be assured that they are a reliable source of healthcare information.
