A diverse range of nurse-led models of care exist in diabetes. Because none of us know when we may be the victim of an accident or disease, every person with diabetes must prepare a “Medical Instruction Letter” signed by the doctor who gives you your diabetes care that describes in detail the treatment you must receive if you are hospitalized or put into a nursing home. The studies on insulin pump treatment also include adults with type 1 diabetes. Qualitative interviews were analysed, using manifest content analysis. Nearly two-thirds of these injuries (n = 73/110; 66.4%) were punctures that drew blood, resulting in one case of contracted hepatitis C. The program was conducted over a 2.5 year period (2010 – 2013). According to Penny Jensen, DNP, APRN, FNP, FAAN, FAANP, of the National APRN Health Policy Liaison for the Office of Nursing Services at the VA, the agency has been working on making changes to nursing policy since 2009.
