Diabetes Medical Management Plan
Parents are responsible for getting the physician's orders, or completed diabetes medical management form for the school.
The DMMP is developed and signed by the student's personal health care team and parent/guardian with the specific needs of an individual student in mind. It should detail all the elements of care and assistance for that student.
Once the DMMP has been provided to the school, it is implemented collaboratively by the school diabetes team, which includes the school nurse, student, parent/guardian, and other school personnel.
The DMMP should be updated annually or when ever the child's regimen, level of self-management, or school circumstances change.
Some health care practitioners will prefer to use their own forms.
A sample DMMP form was developed as a part of the NDEP's Helping the Student with Diabetes Succeed: A Guide for School Personnel.
