Learning activity for Scenario Two
In this scenario, type I and type II diabetic patients will need education on the benefit and use of an insulin pump. When compared to insulin injections, a pump more closely mimics the bodies pancreas in supplying a continuous infusion of insulin (Reece & Hamby Williams, 2014).
The learning objectives are defined as “specific, measurable, achievable, realistic and timebound” (McKimm & Swanwick, 2009, p. 409). When developing objectives for educating patients on insulin pump use, it is important to address adjustment of pump setting, counting carbohydrates, ability to troubleshoot pump, and recognition of complications, such as diabetic ketoacidosis (Reece & Hamby Williams, 2014).
Learner centered activity
Being that the audience for this course will be already diagnosed diabetics with a basic understanding of the disease and treatment, it would be appropriate to adapt a learner centered course with unstructured learning experiences. Once acquiring the knowledge of how the pump is set up and attached, patients would follow an unstructured learning experience and be asked to “apply their previous experiences …to a situation of their choice” (Billings & Halstead, 2016, p. 164). This type of learning motivates learners to retain knowledge, promotes critical thinking, and apply the information to real life scenarios (Billings & Halstead, 2016).
Measuring learning objectives
One method to measure if the learning outcomes are met, is to provide a post class survey to participants. This patient feedback would provide the information needed to determine if learning objectives were met. The survery would specifically ask if patients felt comfortable managing their insulin pump, if their questions were answered, and if they have the tools needed to improve their glycemic control (Reece & Hamby Williams, 2014).
