The purpose of this project was to develop a self-learning module to enhance the knowledge of the medical team at the bariatric center in Orange, regarding reported occurrences of hyperinsulemic hypoglycemia after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass. Because this phenomenon is highly probable and gastric bypass is still a common surgical procedure at this facility, the medical director, office manager, and dietician agreed that part of the teaching of this problem should be included in their standard of care.
This project used a pretest and posttest to verify the acquisition of intended increase of knowledge of this condition, its occurrence, and line of treatment that was current with the latest research on this topic. A paired t test applied to the pretest and posttest to verify acquisition of intended knowledge demonstrated a p value of less than .0001, indicating statistical significance.
