The Managing Childhood Diabetes videos were created to provide Beaumont Pediatric Endocrinology patients and families consistent education about new-onset diabetes care. The educational material is separated into eight videos that coincide with the teaching
tools provided to new-onset diabetes patient families. Patients and their families will watch these videos to learn about the diagnosis and management of diabetes during their hospital stay. We encourage families to re-watch the videos at home and
share the information with grandparents, caregivers, their schools and others.
Note: These videos are Beaumont guidelines to diabetes management. Please follow your child’s individualized care plan, and call your endocrinologist with any questions.
We encourage parents of children with Type 1 diabetes to discuss plans for their children’s care with the principal or 504 building coordinator at the school.
This informational video is titled Managing Type 1 Diabetes in Schools: A Guide for Non-Medical Personnel in Schools. The video is not intended to replace formal training. It is intended to be used in conjunction with formal training from either a school
nurse or parents of the student with Type 1 diabetes. The video provides an overview for non-medical personnel in schools on how to provide care for a student with Type 1 diabetes in the school setting.
This video is accompanied by a guide to treating children with Type 1 diabetes in the school setting. This guide provides step-by-step instructions for the
materials taught throughout the video.
