Managing Diabetes Among Patients in Long-Term Care Facilities: A Quality Improvement InitiativeEvaluating the Challenges and Impact of Birth Cohort Screening for Hepatitis C in the Primary Care Clinic

The objective of this initiative was to improve the quality of care for residents of long-term care facilities who have diabetes by improving glycemic control, increasing comprehensive diabetes management, reducing fragmented care, and empowering patient-care teams to educate patients and families regarding this disease. The primary objective of improving glycemic control was demonstrated by a significant 18% reduction in the percentage of residents experiencing hypoglycemia following the intervention, as well as positive changes in 3 additional measures of patient health.
