This Resource Room as well as the Glycemic Control Implementation Guide has a section
on Building and Implementing the
Subcutaneous Insulin Order Set. These include details of preferred subcutaneous insulin strategies for a variety of forms of
nutritional intake and the translation of these into algorithms and protocols using high reliability design. The specifics chosen
by your institution will need to take into consideration the setting, providers, glycemic control goals, existing protocols, type
of order entry (paper or computer), and more. There is no "one size fits all" order set. However, several institutions have
protocols that do an excellent job incorporating some of these features. This section features examples of
Reference Guides, and
links to commercial enterprises.

The clinical tools were compiled by the Glycemic Control Resource Room Project Team to provide teams developing interventions to improve inpatient care with “real world” examples of what other institutions use. The tools have been implemented in a variety of clinical settings and include order sets, guidelines, and protocols. The resulting library of institution specific tools does not imply endorsement by the Glycemic Control Resource Room Project Team or SHM.
