A position statement is an official ADA point of view or belief that contains clinical or research recommendations. Position statements are issued on scientific or medical issues related to diabetes. They are published in ADA journals and other scientific/medical publications. ADA position statements are typically based on a systematic review or other review of published literature. Position statements undergo a formal review process. They are updated annually or as needed. Key ADA position statements: These are select position statements that represent official ADA opinion on topics not adequately covered in the Standards of Care but that are necessary to provide additional information on quality diabetes management. These position statements also undergo a formal review process. In addition to those published in this supplement, listed below are recent position statements.
