Glucagon Training Items
I usually try to use my summer time to prepare for a great start for the upcoming school year. This summer I've put together a training sequence for all of our bus drivers! Very exciting...All of the bus drivers are going to receive a basic first aid power point presentation- complete with handouts and instructions on how to handle different health/medical situations that may occur during their bus route.
Also, there are a handful of drivers with students who have Type 1 Diabetes on their buses. Those drivers are getting a more in depth education on how to treat severe low blood sugar. In doing my research I've found some very useful tools that I wanted to share with the rest of you....
For a free Glucagon training kit you can call Lily @ 1-800-545-5979. I've already requested my free training kit but haven't received it yet. I've read online that some of the kits come with an educational DVD- we'll see. I was given this resource by a friend whose young son has Diabetes. The nice gal at Lily referred me to the below training video (how nice!),
