School-age children with chronic conditions such as diabetes spend the majority of the school day with teachers. Sound methods to educate teachers on diabetes are needed to facilitate student safety and metabolic control as well as teacher confidence in assisting the student with diabetes. This one group quasi-experimental pre-and posttest design study had 42 preservice (N = 21) and experienced (A = 21) teacher participants view a 30-minute diabetes educational module intervention. Bandura's Social Cognitive Theory and Self-Efficacy was the theoretical basis for study. Confidence and knowledge of participants was measured using the Confidence in Caring for Students Scale and the Test of Diabetes knowledge for Teachers.
