The American Association of Diabetes Educators (AADE) convened a multidisciplinary expert panel to propose guidelines for insulin injection therapy. They examined best practices and explored effective problem solving for patients who have difficulty with insulin injections.
For children using insulin their diabetes must be carefully managed, including the many hours spent at school. The 'Safe at school' resources from the American Diabetes Association include webinars and educational materials for both parents and teachers. The materials cover the main principles of safe management of insulin in children and will useful in all countries.
This handout was produced by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to educate clinical staff on recommended infection control and safe injection practices. Although written for US clinicians it is a useful basis for development of local patient safety information around insulin injection in any country.
