Until recently, glucose control in the hospital setting was largely ignored even in patients with a diagnosis of diabetes. We didn’t realize 1 out of every 3 patients we were caring for was potentially suffering the consequences of uncontrolled hyperglycemia and, worse, these unknown patients were experiencing higher mortality rates after discharge. Bottom line, we MUST do better and you, the bedside nurse, play a critical role in identifying and managing your hypo and hyperglycemic patients.
This seminar will address issues you face in the hospital and give answers to questions you won’t find in any textbook. Imagine being able to look at a single flowsheet and understand exactly why your patient continues to experience hypoglycemia, or persistent hyperglycemia. Expert, Nancy Moline, RN, M.Ed., CDE, will share with you the management techniques and tips she has developed through her extensive experience and increase your understanding of the complexities of diabetes. You will leave this seminar with new tools and formulas to improve the outcomes of your patients with and without diabetes diagnosis.
