      Diabetes Training for School Staff

      Diabetes Training For School Staff Type 1 Diabetes is on the increase in children and particularly in very young children.  The treatment of Type 1 Diabetes amd how school life is affected by it has drastically changed over the last few years.  This means that treatment regimes are more intense in terms of blood glucose monitoring and staff being put into positions where they have to administer insulin by either giving injections or by administering insulin via pumps..........All in all this can be a daunting prospect whic his why we want to fully support schools by inviting everybody along to our training sessions. The sesssions are run by the local diabetes team who are experts in the management of children and young people with Diabetes and covers the following:  A basic overview of Diabetes in children / Management of high and low blood glucose levels / Insulin pump therapy / Diet and exercise / A personal perspective from a parent of a child with Diabetes. Practical workshops will be held covering Administering insulin injections via insulin pens / Checking blood glucose levels by performing finger pricks and familiarisation with different blood glucose meters / Having a go at button pressing on an insulin pump / Basics of carbohydrate counting.
