Abstract

This report presents the results of a crosscheck of information contained in the diabetes surveillance system developed by Institut national de santé publique (INSPQ) against that in the Cree Diabetse Information System (CDIS). This validation process also provided an opportunity to assess the sensitivity and specificity of the Québec Diabetes Surveillance System within a given target population, a first in Canada. Talks between the Eeyou Istchee Cree Board of Health and Social Services and INSPQ led to the signing of a research contract to conduct the validation. The project was funded by Health Canada through the budget earmarked for diabetes surveillance under the Canadian Diabetes Strategy.
