The meal triad requires careful coordination of blood glucose monitoring, insulin administration and nutrition intake to prevent adverse drug events and successfully manage patients with dysglycemia. In the hospital, licensed and unlicensed health professionals share responsibility for coordination and communication across disciplines, and lack of care coordination may lead to hyper or hypoglycemia that can adversely impact patient outcomes.


This session reviews evidence-based best practices and shares implementation ideas and tools to adopt a sustainable and reproducible meal triad process in the inpatient setting.
