National data shows that 17.5% of inpatients have diabetes of whom 35 % are on insulin therapy. Less than 10% of these admissions are related to diabetes primarily. In the majority of admissions, diabetes is a secondary co-morbidity. These patients are often cared for by teams other than the diabetes team.
Inpatient Diabetes Training and Support (ITS) forms the basis for a blended inpatient diabetes educational tool which includes a web based educational resource (including links to educational material and guidance) and short educational animated videos based on real scenarios. This web portal can also serve as a standalone platform for quick access to guidance, educational videos and top tips for reference.
The Inpatient Diabetes Training and Support website hosts a number of key resources including:
- Handbook for adult inpatient diabetes care
- Information about their Insulin Safety Course
- Bitesize diabetes management guides
- Self reflection framework
