Abstract:
Session presented on Friday, July 24, 2015: Background: ??????Diabetes self-management has always been an integral part of diabetes management and access to care for diabetics requires time and travel for patients in this rural county. Telehealth technology is a tool that can provide access to diabetic educators and nutritionists in this rural county.??The Executive Summary: ??Standards of Medical Care in Diabetes- 2013 lists diabetes self-management education, support, and a standard of care for all diabetics at the time of diagnosis and as needed thereafter. ??Effective self-management and quality of life are key outcomes of the DSME and should be measured as part of care. ??This clinic instituted a pilot study utilizing telehealth technology. Aims: ??The purpose of this study is to determine if diabetes education through telehealth will improve outcomes in hemoglobin A1C and BMI measurements in a 3-month period. Methods: ??Retrospective data collection (chart review) of a current pilot project. ??Hemoglobin A1C and BMI will be measured before and after the intervention. Results:?? N= 20.?? The mean hemoglobin A1C scores were decreased after the intervention.?? The mean BMI scores did not change.?? A paired sample t-test was performed using SPSS and the hemoglobin A1C scores were significant, while the BMI were not significant.?? Project conducted in 2014.Discussion:?? Follow up care was difficult as some participants did not come back after the intervention for their follow up lab work.??Linking evidence to actions:?? The Standards of Medical Care in Diabetes-2014 list diabetes self-management as an important step in the prevention and treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus.Implications for practice:?? Telehealth can be an effective, low-cost method of delivering diabetes self-management education and should be offered to some populations to enhance access to care.Conclusions:?? Telehealth interventions are a viable solution to lack of access to care for some populations.
