  • This study is a program evaluation of a pilot nutrition education intervention at a type-1 diabetes clinic in Peking University People’s Hospital. The study aimed to assess three measures of nutrition knowledge (basics of healthy diet, food labels, and carbohydrate counting) pre- and post-intervention using two nutrition education surveys. The study also aimed to use quantitative and qualitative methods to gain patient feedback in order to inform future steps for the intervention. Descriptively, there was an improving trend in all three measures of nutrition knowledge post-intervention, however there was only statistical significance in the difference in scores for “Healthy Diet” and “Carbohydrate Counting” questions. The study also found great variation in baseline nutrition knowledge among patients, which suggests a need for modifications to the intervention to better match educational resources to patient’s baseline knowledge. Future modifications should also include collection of HbA1c post-intervention to assess physiological applicability of the intervention.
