The purpose of this report is to provide a description of the annual Diabetes Audit data collected by participating Indian Health Service (IHS) funded urban Indian health organizations (UIHO). This report’s format is based on the IHS Diabetes Best Practice Guidelines. First developed in 2001 by a workgroup coordinated by the IHS Division of Diabetes Prevention and Treatment, best practices are based on the latest scientific research as well as diabetes success stories and experiences within American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) communities. Included are selected “key measures” from the Best Practice Guidelines, with accompanying aggregated data from participating UIHOs between the years 2006-2010. 45 p
