The purpose of this study is to pilot and evaluate a new online
application to train school nurses to manage care for children with
diabetes in school using the latest best practice principles. RogersÆ
Theory of the Diffusion of Innovations guided development of the online
training. There are a variety of State initiatives to provide information
and education for health care professionals, and school staff to improve
the quality of care for school children with diabetes while in school.
There is no comprehensive evaluation plan that seeks to determine the
outcomes of these information and education initiatives. A partnership was
established with the University, State Department of Health, and State
School Nurses Association to develop an efficient new online application
to train school nurses in the State to establish a best practices diabetes
management program to manage care for school children with diabetes. An
accompanying best practices manual was also developed. It is important to
have an evaluation strategy that includes pilot testing early in
development to assure quality and relevance of the online diabetes
management training. Two pilot training sessions with 16 school nurses
have been completed. A third pilot is planned with 10-15 additional school
nurses. Three online evaluation instruments were developed to determine:
1) if each lessonÆs objectives were met, 2) effectiveness of the teaching
method, 3) ways to improve, 4) overall evaluation of the online course,
and 5) if the information provided in training will improve school nurse's
ability to manage children with diabetes. Descriptive statistics will be
used to analyze results. This evaluation lays the groundwork for phase two
which will determine if trained school nurses are able to implement a best
practices diabetes management program in their schools and outcomes for
children with diabetes, their families, school personnel, and the childÆs
primary care provider.
