A Prospective Single-Arm Feasibility Study of a Personalized Approach to the Inpatient Management of Hospitalized Oncology Patients with Hyperglycemia
The purpose of this study is to compare the outcomes between hospitalized cancer patients with high blood sugar receiving the current standard of care of administering insulin, and hospitalized cancer patients receiving a new, individualized method of insulin administration.
Primary Objective: To correctly implement the basal-prandial-correctional insulin protocol in hospitalized oncology patients in medical units, in order to achieve euglycemia. Important Secondary Objectives: To demonstrate that the correct implementation of basal-prandial-correctional insulin in hospitalized Hispanic patients will reduce the disparity between outcomes for Hispanic and non-Hispanic patients, thereby closing a cancer health disparity gap.
