Purpose Diabetes is the fourth most common comorbid condition and complicates hospital discharges through length of stay (LOS) and associated cost. Healthcare Providers (HCP) knowledge deficit were identified through operational reporting mechanisms; therefore an interdisciplinary diabetic patient care model (IDPCM) of education was developed for HCP. HCP defined are physician, advanced practice nurse and staff nurse.

Theoretical Framework Lewin's change theory provides the framework for change in the care and management of the diabetic patient. The knowledge deficit between the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologist standards of care and current practice of HCP impacted patient care in a large academic medical center. A national study reported HCP had low knowledge of glycemic control.

Methodology The IDPCM team consists of a Certified Diabetes Educator who is a Clinical Nurse Specialist (CNS) and Endocrinologist who worked collaboratively to improve the knowledge base of HCP. The IDPCM formulated a multidisciplinary Task Force to developed a series of five Computer Based Learning Modules, 10 two-hour author developed Nursing Grand Round lectures with continuing educational units, author developed Hazards of Insulin Therapy video, and unit specific guest lectures. The IDPCM and Task Force worked to develop evidence based practice (EBP) guidelines, protocols, and ordersets for computer order entry. Subjects: HCP, 1500 nurses and 2000 physicians were offered the opportunity of the above educational venues.

Results This study will report the findings of LOS and consult request from specific HCP for a 1-year time frame following the educational venue.

Conclusion Evaluation of the educational venues precipitated the CNS in establishing an onsite library resource center and recruited diabetes unit resources champions. Exposure to EBP, practical application, and current research resources, HCP now have the knowledge to provide quality patient care. [Poster Presentation]
