staff nurses knowledge needs to teach diabetes

  1. 0
    Hi All,
    This is my first time posting, so please forgive any unwitting transgrssions.
    I am doing a reseacrh project for my MSN in nursing education at univ of Northern Colorado. My colleagues and I are trying to determine a few things and I thought this might be a great forum for assistance. We need:
    - diabetes knowledge assessment tool, preferably less that 5 years old
    - what are the expectations of your staff nurses?
    - what is your basis for your expectation of knowledge

    anything else that you all would share with me would be a great help.

    First of all, a warm welcome to AllNurses and to the Nursing Educators Forum, Jeanie I am also in a MSN program in nursing education.

    I am unable to answer any questions about staff nurses, but perhaps the following information about a diabetes knowledge assessment tool will be of some assistance:

    The authors developed and validated a semi-structured interview, the Diabetes Self-Management Profile (DSMP),to measure self-management of type 1 diabetes. The DSMP includes the following regimen components: exercise, management of hypoglycemia, diet, blood glucose testing, and insulin administration and dose adjustment.

    Hopefully some other educators will chime in to assist with some of your other questions
