You are correct that
get_field() will not automatically work because you are on the admin side, however, it is possible to pass the post_id you want the value from as a parameter:
global $post; get_field('some_field', $post->id);
There is however still an issue with that global post. Especially on post creation this might not work properly and another issue is that you could only see results by saving your changes and then refreshing the page.
