As the incidence of diabetes continues to rise both locally and nationally, anesthesia providers must be prepared to manage diabetic patients intraoperatively during the administration of anesthesia. Literature suggests that blood glucose levels are not adequately monitored in the operating room, potentially contributing to many postoperative complications. Therefore, this doctoral project aims to develop an evidence-based teaching plan for monitoring intraoperative glucose levels in the diabetic patient population to enhance anesthesia provider knowledge.
