Analytics Support The Delivery Of Effective Diabetes Self-management Education

Add “Using analytics, we are able to identify patients who are not yet using an insulin pump. Rather than waiting until a patient is on an insulin pump to provide education, we can now provide education to potential pump candidates to support their decision-making process, increasing readiness for self-management.” – Sarah Lyons, MD Endocrinologist EXECUTIVE SUMMARY Effectively educating pediatric and adolescent patients and families to self-manage diabetes is a critical part of diabetes care. Leaders at Texas Children’s Hospital, one of the top four children’s hospitals in the country, recognized that diabetes education that incorporates national standards and empowers patients can improve clinical outcomes and quality of life. While diabetes education has always been important to Texas Children’s, the education provided to patients was varied, no organizational standards existed, and tracking the effectiveness was not possible. To address these challenges, Texas Children’s created an Education Care Process Team (CPT) that focused on: developing a standard education curriculum based on national guidelines, creating consistent education materials, leveraging powerful analytics to identify potential learning gaps and customize patient goals, and investing in the professionals who deliver education. As a result of these efforts, Texas Children’s achieved the following: Implementation of a standard diabetes education curriculum. 97.5 percent relative improvement in the percent of diabetes educators who are CDEs. 70.7 percent of patients with diabetes have had an education visit with a CDE, and the hospital is on track to achieve its goal of 80 percent within the year. RECOGNIZING THE IMPORTANT ROLE OF EDUCATION IN IMPROVING OUTCOMES Texas Children’s Hospi Continue reading >>

The National Standards For Dsmes: A Writers Perspective

Home 2017 Preview The National Standards for DSMES: a writers perspective The National Standards for DSMES: a writers perspective TMF Health Quality Institute, Austin, Texas Being selected to be on the National Standards for Diabetes Self-Management Education and Support (DSMES) writing team was an honor. This rewarding experience demonstrates how AADE and ADA collaborate to ensure that these standards keep up with the latest in program management, behavioral health science and adult learning strategies. The NationalStandards for DSMES are a structured, evidence-based process to help you provide sustainable, patient-centric, quality education. These standards are the backbone that supports the work of diabetes educators; without them, it would be difficult to validate that our DSMES services provide positive, sustainable patient outcomes. It is easy to forget that the standards are here as a guide for us and not just a hoop to jump through for reimbursement. Sometimes, we dont even look at the standards unless a question comes up! As our joint organizations release the revised 2017 National Standards for DSMES, challenge yourself and your staffto do at least one of the following: Attend The Revised National Standards of DSMES session at AADE17. (Friday, August 4 at 5:00 pm) Pull up the document and go through each standard to better understand why your program does what it does Go through your standards and make sure they are up to date If you are in an AADE State Coordinating Body or Local Networking Group, use the standards as a topic to cover at your next meeting.

New Ada/aade Standards Combine Diabetes Education. Diab Care

New ADA/AADE Standards Combine Diabetes Education. Diab Care The American Diabetes Association and the American Association of Diabetes Educators have combined the concepts of diabetes self-management education and support for the first time in their updated guidelines published inDiabetes Careand the Diabetes Educator. Diabetes self-management education (DSME) The document outlines 10 specific standards for DSMES programs, including individualization, quality improvement, evaluation of population served, participant progress and ongoing support New recommendations from the American Diabetes Association (ADA) and American Association of Diabetes Educators (AADE) combine the concepts of diabetes self-management education and support for the first time. The document,published onlineJuly 28 in bothDiabetes Careand theDiabetes Educator, is an update from 2014, when guidelines for diabetes self-management support and diabetes self-management education had been outlined separately. Today, the view is that "diabetes self-management education and support (DSMES) is a critical element of care for all people with diabetes and those at risk for developing the condition," write task force cochairs and certified diabetes educators Joni Beck, PharmD, and Deborah A Greenwood, PhD, RN, and colleagues. DSMES is the ongoing process of facilitating the knowledge, skills, and ability necessary for prediabetes and diabetes self-care, as well as activities that assist a person in implementing and sustaining the behaviors needed to manage his or her condition on an ongoing basis, beyond or outside of formal self-management training," they explain. While the standards define evidence-based DSMES services that meet or exceed Medicare's diabetes self-management training (DSMT) regulations, they Continue reading >>

My Aade Network : Blogs : The 2017 Revised National Standards For Diabetes Self-management Education And Support

The 2017 Revised National Standards for Diabetes Self-Management Education and Support Wondering what changes were made to the National Standards for DSMES and how they impact your DSMES service? This blog is intended to give a brief overview of the standards, highlight the changes that were made, and how to implement them into your DSMES services. Here is the article in full (if you are an AADE member you can access it free of chargejust sign in), published in The Diabetes Educator: It can also be found on the American Diabetes Association website: At the end of this blog is my contact information. I help DSMES services with meeting the National Standards and Recognition or Accreditation, so that you can bill Medicare. Im happy to help any way I can! The National Standards for Diabetes Self-Management Education and Support were developed and published in 1984, and programs were first recognized in 1987 using a review process based on the Standards. ADA became a National Accrediting Organization (NAO) in 1986, followed by AADE in 2009. CMS began reimbursing for education in 1997, and the National Standards have been the basis for determining quality and evidence-based diabetes education programs that could bill and be reimbursed for their services. I had the honor of serving on the current Revision Workgroup, and I have to say, it was an incredible learning opportunity! The Standards are typically revised every five years; the last revision happened in 2012, when Montanas Carla Cox was on that particular revision committee. It is possible that the next revision might be in three years because of how healthcare and DSMES are changing so quickly right now! One of the goals of this work was to not make things more complex for those offering DSMES services, but to continue Continue reading >>

2017 National Standards For Diabetes Self-management Education And Support

2017 National Standards For Diabetes Self-management Education And Support

By the most recent estimates, 30.3 million people in the U.S. have diabetes. An estimated 23.1 million have been diagnosed with diabetes and 7.2 million are believed to be living with undiagnosed diabetes. At the same time, 84.1 million people are at increased risk for type 2 diabetes. Thus, more than 114 million Americans are at risk for developing the devastating complications of diabetes (1). Diabetes self-management education and support (DSMES) is a critical element of care for all people with diabetes. DSMES is the ongoing process of facilitating the knowledge, skills, and ability necessary for diabetes self-care, as well as activities that assist a person in implementing and sustaining the behaviors needed to manage his or her condition on an ongoing basis, beyond or outside of formal self-management training. In previous National Standards for Diabetes Self-Management Education and Support (Standards), DSMS and DSME were defined separately, but these Standards aim to reflect the value of ongoing support and multiple services. The Standards define timely, evidence-based, quality DSMES services that meet or exceed the Medicare diabetes self-management training (DSMT) regulations, however, these Standards do not guarantee reimbursement. These Standards provide evidence for all diabetes self-management education providers including those that do not plan to seek reimbursement for DSMES. The current Standards’ evidence clearly identifies the need to provide person-centered services that embrace the ever-increasing technological engagement platforms and systems. The hope is that payers will view these Standards as a tool for reviewing DSMES reimbursement requirements and consider change to align with the way their beneficiaries’ engagement preferences have evolved Continue reading >>

To assess the feasibility and acceptability of a diabetes education program tailored to patients with type 2 diabetes in communities and the preliminary outcomes of the intervention. Methods: Two-phase, one group, mixed-method study design was used. Modified American Association of Diabetes Educators (AADE) diabetes education curriculum was used as the framework for the program. Patients with diabetes participated in classes and diabetes conversation map discussion. Feasibility and acceptability of the program were evaluated by the ability to recruit and retain participants and their satisfaction with the program. Diabetes knowledge test and the summary of diabetes self-care activities (SDSCA) were used to evaluate the knowledge and behavior changes of the patients. Results: 40 patients completed the program and the attrition rate was 11.1%. All participants were very satisfied with the program. Significant improvement in diabetes knowledge and blood glucose monitoring and foot care were reported. Conclusion: The diabetes education program based on modified AADE diabetes education curriculum combined Continue reading >>
