Diabetes: Teaching Patients Self-Care

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

Healthcare professionals who are not diabetes educators are still often called upon to teach diabetes patients techniques of self-care. This involves an understanding about how adults learn and how to create an environment that supports their learning. It is essential to the daily life and future of people with diabetes that they understand and practice self-care so they can manage a disease that can be devastating if it is left unchecked.

When you finish this course, you will be able to:

*Explain the four classes of diabetes and how they differ from one another.
*Discuss the ways you can motivate a diabetes patient using at least two of the education models presented here.
*Be prepared to create a lesson plan for a patient, with the goal of achieving a specific new aspect of self-care.
