support for parents - roles and responsibilities

The parents

The parents play a key role in preparing their
child’s diabetes management at school.

Their role consists
mainly of:

  • Contacting the school principal to discuss his or her child’s special needs related to diabetes.
  • Reading the intervention protocol
  • Transmitting to the nurse the documents necessary for the application of the protocol.
  • Providing emergency kits
  • Forwarding the blood glucose logbook on a daily basis
  • Notifying the school of any changes that may affect the child’s health.

For a complete list of roles and responsibilities, see the School-Based Intervention Protocol for Students with Type 1 Diabetes.
