Diabetes Educators as Stakeholders
Diabetes educators teach people how to self-manage their illness. In these education classes, patients learn how to take medication, how foods affect their blood sugar, and how to lower the risk of diabetic complications. Diabetes education is not a lecture on what not to do, rather it is real-life guidance, coaching, and support proven to help people understand exactly how to best manage their diabetes. With diabetes education taking place in a group or one-on-one setting as part of a formal or informal format, diabetes education is the first step in improving the care and management of diabetes and preventing the onset of complications.
How are Diabetes Educators Involved?
We are looking for diabetes educators at any level of experience, especially those who have taught in a faith-based organization or are multi-lingual. This research project will utilize your expertise to guide individuals at all levels of the stakeholder network on how best to teach patients techniques to manage their diabetes.
Partnership can include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Identify your current challenges in diabetes education
- Guide the stakeholder network on future diabetes education in patient health
- Feedback/critique of research solutions developed
- Guidance on solution implementation
