Abstract:
Poster Presentation: Purpose: The American Diabetes Association has outlined standards of care for patients with diabetes. These standards serve as a guide for healthcare providers to use in treating this chronic disease. The goal is to educate patients in order to prevent acute complications and reduce the risk of long-term complications. The purpose of this study was to determine if diabetic control could be improved in patients that receive diabetes education in a group setting. Methods: Utilizing an interdisciplinary approach, a certified diabetes educator, registered dietician certified in diabetic education and nurse practitioner, designed a series of six one-hour classes. These classes provided education in: what is diabetes and the medications used to treat diabetes, diet and meal planning, glucometers and exercise, acute complications, and finally long term complications. The patient's healthcare provider in the internal medicine clinic informed the patient about the availability of the classes. Enrollment was voluntary. Patients were divided into new diabetics (n=16) and chronic diabetics (n=32). Hemoglobin A1c was measured at enrollment and then 60-90 days after completion of the six classes. A pre-test was given at enrollment and then repeated at the last class. A two-way repeated measures ANOVA was used for data analysis. Values are expressed as mean +/- SE Results: The test scores were: Chronic diabetics: Pre: 80.1 +/- 8.2%; Post: 96.9 +/- 8.2% New diabetics: Pre: 61.9% +/- 2.8%; Post: 87.5 +/- 6.5%. There was no difference in test scores between the new and chronic diabetics (P=0.353). The post-test scores did show a significant improvement over the pre-test scores (P<0.001). The hemoglobin A1c scores were: Chronic diabetics: Pre: 13.2 +/- 1.02%; Post: 12.8 +/- 1.02%; New diabetics: Pre: 8.9 +/- 0.35%; Post: 7.2 +/- 0.49%. There was a significant difference between the new and chronic diabetics (P=0.031) and a significant decrease in HbA1c scores (P=0.008).
