Project Hope E-learning Program Battles Diabetes Online On World Diabetes Day

Project HOPE E-Learning Program Battles Diabetes Online on World Diabetes Day International Diabetes Educator E-Learning Program Receives Official Recognition by International Diabetes Federation On World Diabetes Day, the global NGO Project HOPE says its groundbreaking, self-paced, online diabetes learning program is poised to give thousands of allied health professionals in India skills and strategies to stem the advance of the disease and announced it will launch a Spanish version of the course early next year. IDEEL, theInternational Diabetes Educator E-Learning Program, builds on the Virginia-based NGO's already wide-ranging work tackling diabetes. The IDEEL course has been recognized by the InternationalDiabetes Federation (IDF). IDF estimates that, without intervention, more than 552 million people will have the disease by 2030. Approximately 80 percent of the 4.8 million people who die from diabetes each year are in the developing world, and half of the people who die from diabetes are under the age of 60. Diabetes educators are crucial to reaching communities still unfamiliar with how to recognize, treat and prevent the disease. We are dealing with a public health crisis in the developed and now the rapidly urbanizing developing world where millions have diabetes and millions more are not even diagnosed - approximately 50 percent. Millions more are at risk of developing diabetes, putting businesses, communities, families and health systems at risk of major productivity, financial and resource crises, said Paul Madden, M.Ed., HOPEs Senior Advisor for Non-Communicable Diseases. To tackle this public health crisis, Project HOPE, a global health education and humanitarian assistance organization, partnered with the Cornerstone OnDemand Foundation and the Takeda Ph Continue reading >>

India Diabetes Educator Project Master Trainer Refresher Course

India Diabetes Educator Project Master Trainer Refresher Course

India Diabetes Educator Project Master Trainer Refresher Course Posted By Charlotte Blockon November 14, 2010 Since 2007, Project HOPE in cooperation with the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) has been implementing a diabetes educator project throughout India. India, which carries the largest case burden of adults with diabetes, has traditionally lacked medical professionals to fill the important diabetes educator role. Through the India Diabetes Educator Project (IDEP), Project HOPE is helping create a strong force of diabetes educators to help patients with diabetes learn self-management skills to live long and productive lives. Participating health centers throughout the country nominate nurses and dietitians to be trained as Master Trainers. The graduates then teach other health care workers in diabetes self management education (DSME) through a six-month distance learning approach. In the days leading up to the World Diabetes Day celebration in New Delhi on November 14th, Project HOPE, with assistance from IDF and Canadian Diabetes Association diabetes educators, hosted a refresher course for the Master Trainers. Enthusiastic nurses and dietitian trainers came to New Delhi from participating health centers across the country to hone their diabetes education skills. They heard expert presentations about motivational interviewing, behavior change theory, the Conversation Map approach, and role playing case studies. The Master Trainers will carry this knowledge back to their health centers and passing these new skills to their diabetes educator students, thus expanding the reach of DSME across India.

Joshi, and Viswanathan Mohan India has over 62 million people with diabetes. Unfortunately, there are no trained diabetes educators in India although many are self-taught through experience. The National Diabetes Educator Program (NDEP) was initiated with the primary aim to educate and train diabetes educators in India. The first cycle of NDEP was conducted during the period June 2011 to March 2012 in 96 training centers in India and trained 1032 diabetes educators mainly drawn from various diabetes clinics across the country. Structured modules were taught by diabetologists/endocrinologists or experienced educators. A majority of the trainees attended all sessions and 95% of the trainees acknowledged that the program met its objective and was beneficial to them.

Left to right: Seniors Adreyauna Lewers, Liza Robinson, and Simey Hernandez are the student leaders of an effort that takes students from the classroom into local communities to provide education about living with diabetes. A student-led effort to address diabetes in local communities leads to a new academic course and a flourishing outreach program. Its taken a while for Sewanees diabetes education program to get where it is now, but the evolution went something like this: Students saw a need in the community, developed a program, worked with faculty and staff members to develop procedures, changed course when necessary, and have reached a point where students will be integrally involved in programs that have a positive impact on the health of hundreds of local patients. And now, for the first time, students are being trained as diabetes educators in a two-credit academic course that will allow them to continue the good work. Its been such a great collaborative effort, says Assistant Director of Community Engagement Robin Hille Michaels. It took years of being out in the community and doing this kind of work before all of the pieces started to fall together, but the program is developing in such a natural way. It all started several years ago with students working as volunteers in medical clinics in Winchester and Beersheba Springs. The students kept seeing specific thingshypertension, bad cholesterol, and diabetes, Michaels says. They thought it would be great if they could offer diabetes education at the clinics. Diabetes is a major public-health threat in the United States right now, with Type II diabetes occurring more and more frequently in younger individuals and becoming more prevalent among adults. The students who volunteered in the health clinics knew there Continue reading >>

Why Are We Ignoring Diabetes Education?

Why Are We Ignoring Diabetes Education?

Diabetes is a self-managed condition. That means the person with diabetes must take care of it each and every day —- and know how to do so. There’s an infinite amount of things they must know including how foods impact blood sugar, blood pressure and kidney health. The benefits of exercise and when it’s dangerous to exercise. The importance of taking your medicine, or not. What the blood sugar numbers on their glucose meter mean and what to do with that information. How to prevent and recover from devastating low blood sugar and prevent frequent high blood sugars. Knowing how to manage one’s diabetes can be the difference between living a fairly normal life or suffering from debilitating diabetes complications. Complications can be devastating for both the person with diabetes and his or her family. They include losing your vision, having your foot or leg amputated, feeling constant pain, tingling or absolutely nothing in your feet and dying prematurely from heart disease, as two out of three people do with type 2 diabetes. Nearly 400 million people in the world have diabetes and half don’t know it. 86 million people in the U.S. have prediabetes, 7 million more than a few years ago. Every 6 seconds a person dies from diabetes. Since this education, called diabetes self-management education (DSME), is essential to one’s quality of life with diabetes, why isn’t it one of the first things healthcare providers make sure patients get? A study reveals that only an estimated 6.8 percent of people with newly diagnosed type 2 diabetes received DSME during their first year with diabetes. What’s even more dismaying is that the study participants had private health coverage that would cover the cost of their initial self-management education. Equally hard to believe Continue reading >>

Project Hope And Boston Scientific Launch New Program In Jharkand State Of India Against Noncommunicable Diseases

Project HOPE and Boston Scientific Launch New Program in Jharkand State of India against Noncommunicable Diseases Honourable Chief Minister of Jharkhand Mr. Rahgubar Das signs wall of commitment MILLWOOD, Va., Feb. 29, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Project HOPE , the global health education and humanitarian assistance organization, today is launching a new initiative in the Ranchi District of Jharkand State, India with funding from Boston Scientific Corporation aimed at reducing the burden of three of the most common noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) diabetes, hypertension and cardiovascular disease. According to 2014 data from the World Health Organization, NCDs are estimated to account for 60% of all deaths in India. The death toll due to NCDs in India is expected to increase from 38 million in 2012 to 52 million in 2030. These statistics are largely due to urbanization and economic improvements, which have led to increased life expectancies, changes in diet, decreases in physical activity and an increasing prevalence of obesity, particularly among children. Currently, a lack of trained health care workers and ill-defined roles among the different health sectors (i.e., public, private and volunteers) for providing care and treatment are all significant barriers to combating the growing burden of NCDs in India. In implementing the new, one-year program, which will be called United Dialogue and Action Against Noncommunicable disorders (UDAAN), Project HOPE will work collaboratively with the government of Jharkhand State to more effectively implement the National Program for Prevention and Control of Cancer, Diabetes, Cardiovascular Disease and Stroke (NPCDCS) guidelines, which were established by the government of India to combat the growing burden of NCDs.
