Gap exists between intention, use of technology among diabetes educators

May 18, 2016

Diabetes educators in Australia reported that they intended to use insulin pump therapy, continuous glucose monitoring, apps and videoconferencing with their patients with type 1 diabetes; however, actual reported use of diabetes technology was not enough to support effective disease management, according to results from a recent survey.

“Findings indicate discrepancies and dissonance between [diabetes educators’] strongly positive intentions toward use of common diabetes-related technology for patients with [type 1 diabetes] and their reported actual usage, which is only occasional and probably inadequate for patient support,” Steven James, RN, CDE, of the University of Technology in Sydney, and colleagues wrote. “Continuing education using the principles of adult learning may be key in supporting [diabetes educators] to align their intentions with their practice.”
