Children whose parents reported that school personnel received diabetes training showed significantly better diabetes control than those who reported untrained school personnel. Children who reported their classmates received diabetes training had significantly better quality of life (QOL) than those who reported untrained classmates. Conclusions Students with diabetes continue to face challenges at school. Training staff and classmates and allowing students the maximum appropriate flexibility in diabetes care appears beneficial for disease control and QOL.

Can school personnel who do not receive training for insulin administration (injection, pump) be considered trained?
