Individual healthcare plan for Type 1 diabetes
This individual healthcare plan is intended to be completed by the Diabetes Specialist Nurse for any child or young person with Type 1 diabetes in a school or Early Years setting. It is recommended that the plan should be discussed and agreed annually between the Specialist Nurse, parent/carer and the school. It provides a summary of day-to-day care, including regular times for blood glucose monitoring and insulin administration, the level of supervision required, special dietary needs and adaptations required when exercising. It also includes action plans for hypoglycaemia and hyperglycaemia.
Printed copies have been distributed to the Diabetes Specialist Nurses at each Trust, but they can also save the PDF version below, complete it electronically and print if required.
