First District RESA ~ Diabetes Education Training PDF Print E-mail

Several systems requested that a regional Diabetes Education Training be held this fall. The school nurse is the preferred person to provide care for a student with diabetes. Many schools do not have a full time nurse or the nurse is not always available to provide direct care during the school day. Additional school personnel will be needed to be prepared to perform diabetes care tasks when a school nurse or other health care personnel is not available. According to the Georgia Code other school personnel are not required to be a health care professional (“trained diabetes personnel” means a school employee who volunteers to be trained in accordance with the Code). Each local board of education shall insure that the training be provided to a minimum of two school employees at each school attended by a student with diabetes. In additional school systems shall provide information in the recognition of diabetes related emergency situations to all bus drivers responsible for the transportation of a student with diabetes. If you have trained staff in place or your school nurse provides the “volunteer lay personnel” training, they do not have to attend this training. This training is for new personnel you want to receive the training ~ or personnel who might benefit from an update.

Susan B. Riley DNP, FNP, CDE
