Purpose: We all know someone in our close circle that has been affected by diabetes in some way. A lot of progress has been made with research and new drugs to help people do better in managing their diabetes. Imagine if there were a collaborative approach to have people from the community be trained in an evidence-based curriculum. The good news – there is! This model also creates a pathway for individuals to go back to their own community and deliver free diabetes workshops using a group model approach. In this presentation you will learn more about how we train educators in a way that respects adult learning styles by doing dynamic hands-on activities, plain language, using visual aids, and having group discussion to help people feel more empowered to manage their diabetes. This session will arm you with techniques to use in guiding patient and group engagement, and provide insight to a growing sustainable statewide effort to support community DSME.
