Abstract

Three hundred and sixty-one Florida hospitals, nursing homes, county health units, home health agencies, and other medical institutions participated in a survey to determine the content, personnel and resources of diabetes education services. Of the responding institutions 44 percent had outpatient and 60 percent inpatient educational activities serving an average of 4054 patients per week. Eighty percent of the primary diabetes educators are nurses. Sixty-three percent of the institutions have a team approach. Most patient instruction is on an individual basis, lasts one to two hours, and takes place in the patient's room. The quality of available printed and audiovisual materials generally are considered to be good. Topics frequently covered include: diabetes causation, medications, hypo/hyperglycemia, diet and nutrition, urine testing, foot care and hygiene. The most common problem encountered is the lack of adequately trained personnel. The most frequently requested types of assistance from the Diabetes Centers are educational materials and patient and professional curriculum development.
