dc.description.abstract Maintaining appropriate glucose levels is important to patients with diabetes because it helps to improve patients' quality of life and prevents medical complications. This study was designed to determine if there was a statistically significant difference in blood glucose levels between a treatment group that completed a certified diabetes education program with telephonic follow-up by a diabetes educator and a comparison group that also received the certified diabetes education program but without telephonic follow-up. A pretest/posttest control group design was used which randomly assigned subjects to groups by clusters. From the analysis of data it was determined that there was no statistical difference in blood glucose levels between the treatment and the comparison groups. Therefore, weekly telephonic follow-up did not statistically impact blood glucose levels in the treatment group. However, the results did indicate that the telephonic follow-up may have impacted the proportion of patients who returned for post blood glucose testing and sought treatment for other related health concerns.
