ISPAD/IDF DKA prevention poster

RESOURCE / December 17, 2015

ISPAD/IDF Life for a Child - DKA prevention poster (in English) you could find here.

The Life for a Child Programme has introduced a 6-icon poster - the 6th icon depicting the later stages of DKA - and invited countries supported by the Programme to participate. The campaign was developed to alert health professionals to the signs and symptoms of diabetes in order to make a swift diagnosis and provide appropriate treatment to save lives - championing the vision that no child should die of diabetes. Health professionals are the key target audience for this campaign with posters put up in emergency rooms, paediatric wards, treatment rooms, medical and nursing schools, major health centres, paediatrician offices and diabetes centres.

ISPAD/IDF DKA prevention poster

The incidence of DKA at onset ranges from approximately 15-80% in different parts of the world. The lower numbers are usually from countries with a higher incidence, thereby having a greater public awareness of the warning symptoms. Professor Vanelli from Parma, Italy, published already in 1999 results from a very successful campaign. Posters were displayed in schools, at GP offices and pediatric centers 1991-1997. The frequency of DKA at onset of diabetes in the age group 6-14 years decreased from 78% to 0% after 1992. Information on these results can be downloaded below.
