Evaluating the effectiveness of a proposed solution assesses the extent of program objectives being met, which demonstrates the changes in knowledge, attitude, skills, perception and behavior of the nursing professionals regarding diabetes mellitus, and changes in the health status of diabetic patients in a nursing home (Julia, Jacobs, Jones, Gabella, Spring & Brownson, 2012). All the four types of evaluation methods will be used to achieve the project objectives. Firstly, a formative evaluation will be used before the initiation of the program so that feasibility and appropriateness of teaching learning materials can be assessed for nursing professionals.

Furthermore, changes in the health status of patients will be evaluated by assessing the patient’s skin, foot, neurological assessment, visual assessment, history of fall, rate of urinary tract infections (UTI), diet control and others. Also, changes in the knowledge of patients regarding the disease process and their health status will be expected, which will be evaluated by asking questions regarding the importance of diet therapy and exercise. Patients will be evaluated by checking the blood glucose level to ensure a positive changes in controlling blood glucose, and others. In fact, a level of life satisfaction among patients will be assessed by observing the patient 's daily activities, participation in diabetes management program, daily mood, and others.

Changes in these variables will indicate the positive program outcome, for instance, regular diabetic assessment of patients, diabetic health education to the patients, motivation of patients for exercise and diet control by nursing professionals demonstrates that knowledge, attitude, skills and perception regarding diabetic care have changes as per program goal. Similarly, attitude and perception of patients such as increased awareness towards diabetes such as patient’s participations in an exercise program, controlling diet and increased self- management activities will demonstrate that patients are well educated and aware regarding their health status. Moreover, Assessing the level of life satisfaction among patients clearly explains the extent of diabetic complications, quality of patient care by nursing professionals and others. If patients are receiving a quality of diabetic care, they will be free from diabetic complications such as foot ulcer, falls, urinary tract infections, neuropathy, nephropathy, delirium and others (American Diabetes Association, n. d) and level of life satisfaction will be higher. By contract, if they haven’t received appropriate health education and quality of diabetic care, they may have many complications
