Description

The Children's Mercy Diabetes Center is making a change to the way it cares for the 250 to 300 type 1 and 2 diabetes patients newly diagnosed each year, transitioning them from inpatient to outpatient treatment.

Patients over 5 years old and their families will receive the education and training needed to maintain healthy blood glucose levels in three outpatient visits over the course of 1 month. Children under 5 or those who present with diabetic ketoacidosis will continue to be admitted to the hospital. This change is being made to enhance the patient experience in receiving and retaining education related to their new diabetes diagnosis.

Hear from Ryan McDonough, DO, as he discuss this new clinic model and the benefits it will offer to patients newly diagnosed with diabetes.
