Management of the Diabetic Patient from ER to Discharge
Management of the Diabetic Patient from ER to Discharge is organized by American Association of Critical-Care Nurses (AACN) and will be held from Sep 06, 2018 - Dec 31, 2019.
Many hospitals do not achieve the glycemic standard for inpatients due to factors which can include timing of nutritional therapies, unexpected transport of patient and the patient’s overall clinical situation. Join this highly interactive lecture that uses patient case scenarios to teach how to effectively identify critical care obstacles contributing to problematic issues in the management of the hospitalized diabetic patient. Nursing care plans and educational tools for the patient and the staff can help to optimize patient care and enhance quality. Comprehensive treatment strategies to care for the hyperglycemic patient from the emergency room to discharge are discussed and are available for the attendees to bring back to their own unit.
• Discuss the role of oral treatment, insulin regimens and sliding scales for the hospitalized diabetic.
• Describe therapeutic choices and treatment strategies for patients with diabetes.
• Discuss safe transition to outpatient treatment for patients hospitalized for ketoacidosis, hyperglycemia or treatment related hypoglycemia.
