Diabetes Education Program* Goals
 


The Outpatient Diabetes Education Program offers support for medical professionals seeking to educate their patients about diabetes by providing the tools and information to help patients better manage their diabetes. If you have recently been diagnosed with diabetes, talk to your physician about the benefits of being referred to our program.

 Assuring high-quality education for patient self-care is one of the primary goals of the Education Recogniton program. Through the support of the health care team and increased knowledge and awareness of diabetes, the patient can assume a major part of the responsibility for their diabetes management. Unnecessary hospital admissions and some of the acute and chronic complications of diabetes may be prevented through self-management education.

Our program offers:

  • General Disease Overview
  • Information on Medications
  • Nutrition and Meal Planning
  • Exercise Information
  • Blood glucose monitoring
  • Goal Setting
Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center Diabetes Education Self-Management Program has been recognized by the American Diabetes Association for Quality Self-Management Education*. The ADA Education Recognition assures that approved programs have met the National Standards for Diabetes Self-Management Education Programs. Programs that achieve Recognition status have a staff of knowledgeable health professionals who can provide state-of-the-art information about diabetes management for participants.
