The hospital inpatient prevalence of diabetes mellitus can be estimated between 20 and 30%. Even moderate hyperglycemia is associated with increased morbidity and mortality in the acute care setting, whereas efficient glycemic control has been shown to improve both of them significantly. Glycemic control however remains largely inefficient outside of the intensive care unit due to the persistance of an inadequate glycemic management practice. We are currently developing a clinical care project aimed at changing this practice. For an efficient glycemic control, a training programme for health care professionals based on the concept of covering the insulin needs of the patient is mandatory. This programme needs to be integrated in a systemic approach, which takes the professionals' context in account.
