Disaster Preparedness Among Families Caring for Children With Diabetes

2014-08-27 03:26:38 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The primary aim of the survey is to ascertain the emergency preparedness among our families with diabetes mellitus and to obtain a percentage of unprepared to the ones who are prepared. The secondary aim is to demonstrate the relationship between disaster preparedness and factors like socio-economic status, parent's marital status, ethnicity and those who had prior experience of a disaster to those who have not experienced a disaster.

Description

This is a cross-sectional study. The subjects are the parent/parents/legal guardian, who will be coming to the clinic for their routine appointment for diabetes management. During the time in which the subject is waiting for the doctor or after their check-up, a research team member will approach the family and ask for their permission to administer the survey. The survey consists of a series of questions designed to ascertain the awareness towards emergency preparedness among families. After they have completed the questionnaire they would be given and/or mailed handouts to enhance their awareness towards disaster preparedness.

Potential Benefits:

This study will help to increase awareness regarding disaster preparedness among the surveyed families. Subjects and families will gain valuable information about caring for diabetes in the event of a disaster.

The potential benefit to the society is that through this study we can ascertain the primary caregiver's awareness of disaster preparedness in regard to a family member with a chronic illness. We will suggest measures to improve their competency towards dealing with disasters. We will be providing educational literature to the primary care givers in the form of handouts at the end of the survey.

A subclass of DIABETES MELLITUS that is not INSULIN-responsive or dependent (NIDDM). It is characterized initially by INSULIN RESISTANCE and HYPERINSULINEMIA; and eventually by GLUCOSE INTOLERANCE; HYPERGLYCEMIA; and overt diabetes. Type II diabetes mellitus is no longer considered a disease exclusively found in adults. Patients seldom develop KETOSIS but often exhibit OBESITY.
