practice your bedside manner by talking to a hypothetical patient who has just been diagnosed with type II diabetes. You’ll talk them through the following:
how to monitor their insulin levels regularly
how to recognize when they may be suffering from low blood sugar
how to administer insulin, with a demonstration
Your patient understands the basics of their condition and will follow the regimen you propose but has come to you for more specific advice. Your patient is a teenager and is accompanied by their parent, so your advice and demonstration will be given to both the patient and their guardian.
