There will be a total of four classes that begin on the first Monday of the month and end on the last Monday of the month. Each class will have fifteen seats. Smaller classes allow for optimal learning (Riding & Rayner, 2013). These sessions will provide new ways of achieving optimal control of blood sugar through life style changes. These classes will provide the diabetic education that will allow the learner to make educated choices that will promote health and stable blood sugars. The teaching plan for a learner with diabetes should include: diet, administration, possible adverse effects of medication, exercise, blood glucose monitoring, hygiene, and the prevention and recognition of hypoglycemia and hyperglycemia (Chary, Greiner, Bowers, & Rohloff, 2012). Each person will have a treatment plan that includes individualized meal plans, education related to diabetes and nutrition values, and mutually agreed short term and long term goals for lifestyle changes. These classes will be tailored to the diabetic’s needs and the importance of complying with the prescribed treatment plan of each learner.
