Abstract:

Objectives: To assess students’ attitudes of an instructional approach to teaching diabetes care. Methods: Laboratory instruction for diabetes care was divided into four sections, otherwise known as the four Ms of diabetes care: meal planning, motion, medication, and monitoring. Students participated in activities that simulated situations patients with diabetes might experience. At the meal planning station, students learned the basics of carbohydrate counting, selected food from a buffet, and calculated the carbohydrate content of their meals. They then compared the nutritional value of sugar free foods against traditional foods. At the motion station, students were randomly selected to “experience” a diabetic complication, such as a hypoglycemia, during an exercise activity and asked for an appropriate medical response. Students also performed foot checks and covered the standards of care. At the monitoring station, students familiarized themselves with blood glucose meters and determined their blood sugar. At the medication station, students injected themselves with normal saline to simulate an insulin injection. Students counseled one another on giving insulin injections and blood glucose testing. At the conclusion of lab, students completed an evaluation regarding the instructional approach. Results: Students were positive in their evaluations of the instructional methods utilized. Over 90% of the students strongly agreed that the lab was interesting, assisted in learning concepts related to lecture, and would help them apply these skills in the “real” world. Implications: Students were favorable in their assessment of the instructional methods that allowed them to experience aspects of diabetes care from a patient perspective.
