[Research Presentation] Diabetes has reached epidemic proportions in the United States with 14.6 million people diagnosed representing 7.0% of the population while 6.2 million remain undiagnosed. Diabetes was listed as the sixth leading cause of death in 2002 in the United States. Complications from diabetes are more far reaching than other chronic disease processes accounting for 65% of deaths in people with heart disease and stroke. Managing inpatient diabetes and glycemic control is a recognized safety and quality issue in the healthcare industry requiring additional training for healthcare providers. Clinical simulation using a high fidelity manikin may assist the educational process by closing the learning gap between the didactic and ôreal worldö practice. Clinical simulation may also play a role in the reduction of medical errors and increase patient safety by improving nurses understanding and therefore acceptance of evidence based practice guidelines. The purpose of this research utilization project is to develop, implement and measure effectiveness of a scenario based clinical simulation to teach an evidence-based protocol for diabetes management. This simulation experience will be tested using baccalaureate nursing students as a pilot study prior to implementation with the nursing staff at the local hospital. The Subcutaneous Hyperglycemia Protocol developed by the local hospital Certified Diabetes Educators will be incorporated into the scenario. Senior BSN students will participate by taking a pre-test and completing a pre-clinical assignment relating to the Subcutaneous Hyperglycemia Protocol prior to the clinical simulation. During the clinical simulation, the students will select the appropriate treatment for diabetes management of their patient using the Subcutaneous Hyperglycemia Protocol. After the simulation, students will complete a post-test.This poster presentation will address the findings of the project including the effectiveness of using clinical simulation to teach an evidence based protocol.
