Overview of Diabetes in Children

Price: $69.95 Hours:24 Contact Hours
Item # N1914  

Release Date: December 6, 2016

Expiration Date: December 31, 2019

Diabetes mellitus is a complex, chronic metabolic disease that is becoming increasingly common. Both type 1 and type 2 diabetes are increasing in incidence in pediatric populations. There are excellent guidelines for the care of children with type 1 diabetes, but few research-based guidelines exist that are specific to the care of children with type 2 diabetes. Unfortunately, few interventions for type 2 diabetes in youth have been successful, making prevention of obesity by lifestyle interventions even more crucial.

The purpose of this course is to assist nurses in a variety of settings to understand the complex metabolic, developmental, emotional, and social implications for a child with diabetes and the family. Understanding the unique considerations for this population will assist the nurse to provide supportive and flexible care. Nurses in schools, clinics, primary care offices, and hospitals need to be knowledgeable caregivers and educators for these families to enhance diabetes care and provide much needed emotional support. The ongoing epidemic of obesity and type 2 diabetes in youth affords an opportunity for nurses to be involved in community-wide efforts to influence risk factors, promote lifestyle changes, and potentially prevent or delay the development of type 2 diabetes.
