The burden of diabetes mellitus (DM) has increased rapidly, affecting both individuals and society. Recent data suggest that multiple DM conditions impose an even larger burden on society and individuals. The effective self-management and prevention of DM has been one of the major agendas of health policy around the world. This is a time of sweeping change in health care regarding DM. To prepare for these changes, the American Association of Diabetes Educators (AADE) completed a thorough assessment of the current environment and trends affecting people with diabetes and diabetes education professionals.

Evolution Of The American Association Of Diabetes Educators' Diabetes Education Outcomes Project.

Evolution of the American Association of Diabetes Educators' diabetes education outcomes project. Peeples M, et al. Diabetes Educ. 2007 Sep-Oct. The American Association of Diabetes Educators, Chicago, Illinois (Ms Peeples) Department of Endocrinology, Lovelace Medical Group, Albuquerque, New Mexico (Ms Tomky) Amylin Pharmaceuticals, Inc, San Diego, California (Ms Mulcahy) Loyola College and Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, Maryland (Dr Peyrot) The University of Pittsburgh Medical Center and Medicine, University of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (Dr Siminerio) Diabetes Educ. 2007 Sep-Oct;33(5):794-817. PURPOSE: This is the initial article in a series that describes a multiyear project of a professional membership organization to define, standardize, collect, and report the outcomes of diabetes self-management education. The purpose of this article is to describe and summarize the contributions of each phase of the project: determining a conceptual framework, developing and testing measurement instruments, defining outcome standards for diabetes self-management education, and implementing a technology approach to capturing the outcomes. METHODS: Association archives, project participants, presentation slides, and published articles provide the historical information that is presented in this article. RESULTS: Evidence for diabetes education as an intervention has been demonstrated, but key questions remain about what settings and which interventions, provided by whom and over what period of time, produce what outcomes. This project integrated diabetes education outcomes reporting into a system of diabetes care through the development of measurement methods and a data collection system for patients and educators at the point of service. CONCLUSIONS: The Continue reading >>

Does Insurance In Your State Cover Diabetes Education? | American Society On Aging

Does Insurance In Your State Cover Diabetes Education? | American Society On Aging

Does Insurance in Your State Cover Diabetes Education? In the United States, older adults have the highest rates of diabetes of any age group; one-quarter of all adults over the age of 65 have diabetes, according to the 2017 National Diabetes Statistics Report f rom the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Older African-Americans and Latinos bear the greatest burden of the countrys diabetes epidemic. Compared to the general population, they experience higher rates of diabetes and as well as a greater risk of diabetes-related complications such as amputations and blindness. One strategy to improve health outcomes and quality of life among older adults living with diabetes is diabetes self-management education and training (DSME/T). This program provides information to help people with diabetes manage the condition and incorporates patients unique needs and experiences into individualized support plans. Diabetes support plans promote healthy eating, physical activity, self-monitoring, and medication use. Plans also often address risk reduction, management of acute and chronic complications, and problem-solving strategies to establish healthy habits. Research shows that by giving patients the tools necessary to manage their diabetes, DSME/T significantly improves health outcomes and reduces health care expenditures. Medicare Covers DSME/T, but Participation Is Low Despite DSME/Ts effectiveness, participation rates are very low, even among patients with insurance. For example, a 2015 study of Medicare beneficiaries concluded that only 5% of those with recently diagnosed diabetes received DSME/T services. Medicare covers 10 hours of outpatient DSME/T in the year following a patients first referral for DSME/T and up to 2 hours of follow-up training in each subsequent Continue reading >>

Diabetes Self-management Education And Support In Type 2 Diabetes: A Joint Position Statement Of The American Diabetes Association, The American Association Of Diabetes Educators, And The Academy Of Nutrition And Dietetics

Diabetes Self-management Education And Support In Type 2 Diabetes: A Joint Position Statement Of The American Diabetes Association, The American Association Of Diabetes Educators, And The Academy Of Nutrition And Dietetics

Diabetes is a chronic disease that requires a person with diabetes to make a multitude of daily self-management decisions and to perform complex care activities. Diabetes self-management education and support (DSME/S) provides the foundation to help people with diabetes to navigate these decisions and activities and has been shown to improve health outcomes (1–7). Diabetes self-management education (DSME) is the process of facilitating the knowledge, skill, and ability necessary for diabetes self-care. Diabetes self-management support (DSMS) refers to the support that is required for implementing and sustaining coping skills and behaviors needed to self-manage on an ongoing basis. (See further definitions in Table 1.) Although different members of the health care team and community can contribute to this process, it is important for health care providers and their practice settings to have the resources and a systematic referral process to ensure that patients with type 2 diabetes receive both DSME and DSMS in a consistent manner. The initial DSME is typically provided by a health professional, whereas ongoing support can be provided by personnel within a practice and a variety of community-based resources. DSME/S programs are designed to address the patient’s health beliefs, cultural needs, current knowledge, physical limitations, emotional concerns, family support, financial status, medical history, health literacy, numeracy, and other factors that influence each person’s ability to meet the challenges of self-management. It is the position of the American Diabetes Association (ADA) that all individuals with diabetes receive DSME/S at diagnosis and as needed thereafter (8). This position statement focuses on the particular needs of individuals with type 2 diabet Continue reading >>
