This article reports on a retrospective audit of electronic patient records, which was conducted to explore dietetic outcomes in people who completed a community diabetes weight management intervention. The author presents the findings from the audit and makes the case that introducing psychometrically robust measures for quality of life and self-management into routine practice would provide the additional evidence commissioners need to support diabetes weight management. She also argues that - alongside determining core outcomes - standardising the language used and the structure of dietetic records is the next challenge for dietitians.
