Practical solutions to prevent and prepare for hypoglycemia
Despite advances in diabetes care, hypoglycemia remains a common complication. Yes, new therapies are associated with less hypoglycemia risk, and patients are increasingly using continuous glucose monitoring, but episodes of hypoglycemia still occur. Some of these episodes are severe, and patients require assistance for recovery.
To better support health care providers, Davida Kruger, APN-BC and Anne Peters, MD, in collaboration with the Academy for Continued Healthcare Learning (ACHL), developed a simple, systematic approach to quality improvement to ensure that patients are prepared to prevent, recognize, and manage hypoglycemia. The framework and tools are intended for easy access and application in any practice setting.
