Lack of EBP education on Type 2 diabetes patients
Based on the summary of research findings identified from the Evidence-Based Project�Paper on
Diabetes that describes a new diagnostic tool or intervention for the treatment of diabetes in adults or
children, complete the following components of this assignment:
Develop a PowerPoint presentation (a title slide, 6-12 slides, and a reference slide; no larger than 2
MB) that includes the following:
A brief summary of the research conducted in the Evidence-Based Project � Paper on Diabetes.
A descriptive and reflective discussion of how the new tool or intervention may be integrated into
practice that is supported by sound research.
9.3 percent(29 million) people in the
USA have diabetes.
1.7 million of them are people above 20
208,000 people are younger than 20 years
Additional 86 million adults are identified
To evaluate the impact of clinical algorithm

Barriers to effective management
The identified underlying barriers to
effective care as indicated by the
Psychological needs eg body

Review of the evidence based practice literature
glycosylated haemoglobin (HbA1c) is effectively managed through(Stranieri,
Yatsko, Jelinek & Venkatraman, 2015);
stabilize blood sugar control
balance between food intake and exercises.
Use of clinical algorithm promotes individualized care plan
Focusing on patient education on lifestyle modification facilitates lifestyle
modification which is an effective care regimen (Reinehr, 2013).
“general diabetes education, cognitive behavioural therapy, and skills training are
linked to improvements on physical and emotional patient outcomes”
According to the evidence based research, the main cause of increased complications
among the patients diagnosed with diabetes type 2 is disorganized care regimen and low
health literacy on strategic coping strategies for the disease.
Notably, there is no cure for diabetes type 2. However, the disease is effectively
managed through appropriate medication regimen combined with appropriate lifestyle
modification (Steinsbekk, et al., 2012).
The evidence based practice indicates that patient empowerment arm them with
appropriate and adequate skills that helps them overcome the shortcomings that arise in
the process (Kayshap et al., 2013).
Evidence based Intervention

Integration of culturally sensitive
Focused diabetes patient education
The main concern is low knowledge
about diabetes type 2
Most patients lack adequate
information on most strategic
consequently, most patient are
confused, perplexed, and uncertain
about the disease and its management
Barriers to evidence based practice
The expected outcome as indicated by the evidence based practice includes
lower incidence rates on;
lower clinical visits,
limp amputation rates
or disability for health issues associated with diabetes
Diabetes type 2 management is a complex process.
Promotion of clinical algorithm is important in delivering patient centred care Patient
education guides patients on;
Effective physical activeness
This facilitates effective management of the glycemic control to reduce progression
of the disease and complications associated .
