Diabetes 2 Go Inpatient

In partnership with Michelle Magee, MD, Director, MedStar Diabetes Institute, the MIQS research team led by Kelly M. Smith, PhD, are transforming diabetes education for patients hospitalized with Type II Diabetes. Diabetes to Go-Inpatient is a diabetes survival skills education program delivered on a tablet and is geared towards closing a patient’s gaps in knowledge about how to care for their diabetes when they go home. The project, funded by the National Institutes of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases, aims to review and optimize the Diabetes to Go education, the process of delivering the education to patients, and to support how nurses deliver diabetes education at the bedside. We aim to demonstrate that delivering high-quality diabetes education at the bedside is possible and improves early post-hospital outcomes for our patients. See publications from this project!
