Diabetes Education: A Comprehensive Review (Advancing Practice)
The Canadian Diabetes Association estimates that by the year 2020, more than 1 in 4 Canadians will be living with either prediabetes or diabetes.1 These patients are going to require extensive training and educational resources to improve glycemic control and reduce their risk of diabetic complications. Healthcare professionals, and particularly pharmacists, are ideally positioned to provide this education due to their accessibility and their strong relationships with patients. With the proper education, they can become diabetes experts and greatly improve the overall health of diabetes patients in their community.
Diabetes Education: A Comprehensive Review is a certificate-level continuing education program designed to provide you with the tools you need to educate your patients, or prepare to write the Certified Diabetes Educator (CDE) exam. It can enhance your knowledge on all aspects of diabetes management including glycemic targets, medication/nutritional management, diabetic complications as well as the education theory and self-management strategies that can enhance the education of all your patients with diabetes.
