About Danish Diabetes Knowledge Center
Danish Diabetes Knowledge Center is a Danish knowledge center that collects and disseminates research-based information about diabetes at the website videncenterfordiabetes.dk.
The knowledge center was established in 2018 as a unit under Steno Diabetes Center Copenhagen, a hospital in the Capital Region of Denmark that specializes in the treatment, research and prevention of diabetes and training of health care professionals in diabetes.
Danish Diabetes Knowledge Center collaborates with the four other Steno diabetes centers in Denmark (Steno Diabetes Center Nordjylland, Steno Diabetes Center Odense, Steno Diabetes Center Sjælland and Steno Diabetes Center Aarhus). All Steno diabetes centers in Denmark and Greenland were established in a collaboration with each of the Danish Regions and the Novo Nordisk Foundation.
About the knowledge portal
Since 2019, the Danish Diabetes Knowledge Center has through this knowledge portal made research-based and applicable information about diabetes available in Danish to anyone interested in knowing about diabetes.
We provide information about the different types of diabetes: type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes, gestational diabetes, LADA (Latent Autoimmune Diabetes of Adults), MODY (Maturity-Onset Diabetes of the Young) as well as other types of diabetes.
Our target groups are people with diabetes, their relatives, health care professionals, professionals working in the diabetes field and others who want to know more about diabetes.
The information provided by the Danish Diabetes Knowledge Center should preferably be:
- Research-based: The information should, as a starting point, be based on the best available research. Where this is not possible, the information may instead be based on best practices and consensus in the diabetes field.
- Applicable: The information should be suitable for immediate use by our target groups in their daily lives and/or professional work.
- Target group-specific: The information should be provided in a way that considers the composition and prerequisites of the target groups.
- Context-specific: The information should, to the extent possible, be relevant to the context of the users of the target group of the knowledge portal.
The Danish Diabetes Knowledge Center has joined the Danish Code of Good Health Communication.
