Management of type 1 diabetes in school-aged children within schools

Project ID: 2020-009/2021 0950 104 000
Type of Response: Research project
Knowledge User: Canadian Pediatric Society
ICES Scientist: Lesley Plumptre
Summary: A qualitative study by the Canadian Pediatric Society seeks to identify the number of individuals aged 0-18 with diabetes using sub-LHIN geographic indicators for quality improvement purposes. Using the Ontario Diabetes Dataset to identify children with type 1 diabetes, the Knowledge User will examine how provincial policy on the care of these children has been implemented across schools in Ontario. The data will be used to create a provincial map identifying pockets where there are high numbers of children with type 1 diabetes. As well, the research evidence will be used to address barriers in schools by way of advocacy, adapting current resources, and developing new guidelines and tools to better serve the target population.
