Description

Since the introduction of insulin pumps several decades ago, Continuous Subcutaneous Insulin Infusion (CSII) therapy has become the preferred method of treatment for everyone with Type 1 Diabetes. For patients using CSII, it replaces multiple daily injections (MDI) of insulin. CSII is also used for some people with Type 2 Diabetes who, as a result of the progression of their diabetes, require MDI of insulin a day, similar to a person who has Type 1 Diabetes. This means that the number of patients with diabetes being admitted to Long Term Care (LTC) who utilize CSII has increased and will continue to do so. Patients are being admitted for LTC at younger ages than previously, often due injuries and illnesses that require them to have assistance during an extended recovery. Many of the patients admitted to LTC are mentally alert but need of physical care during an extended recovery or rehabilitation time. The dilemma in the LTC setting, when a patient is admitted who has been on CSII, is whether to continue the CSII or revert back to MDI of insulin. In this course, we will explore when it is appropriate to leave the patient on CSII, when to consider reverting to multiple injections and how to manage an insulin pump in LTC when it is determined to be the preferred method of treatment. Videos, pictures and links to pertinent web sites are included to enhance the learning experience.

Objectives

Upon completion of this course, the participant will be able to:
1.Discuss the advantages and the disadvantages of continuing CSII in a LTC facility.
2.Identify the most important resource needed to continue CSII in a LTC facility.
3.Name the urgent interventions required to problem solve hyper and hypoglycemia for a patient on CSII.
4.Specify the type of insulin most commonly used in CSII.
5.List the options for in-person or on-line pump training to advance nursing skills for CSII.
