Learning Opportunities for Professionals

Diabetes Manager University (DMU) Program

DMU GraphicWhether you are new to diabetes or an experienced diabetes educator, diabetes presents unique challenges to those affected and to the health professionals who serve them. And because of those challenges, things aren’t going very well for the vast majority of people who live with this disease. If we want to change the outcomes of care, we have to be willing to review and, when necessary, change what we do. This is what we call “Learning to Make a Difference”.

Our Diabetes Manager University is a mastery course in how and why to use today’s best therapies in a patient-centered model of care. The three day program for health care professionals includes case presentations, experiential learning, and professional debate.

Over the course of the training program, Participants will learn:

  • Early detection and intervention strategies
  • How to improve metabolic control and patient engagement using blood glucose monitoring
  • The use of today’s diabetes medications and delivery devices in a patient-centered model of care
  • Help patients “write their own diets” and exercise plans to achieve better outcomes and motivation
  • How to become a more valued coach and partner

Do you have experience living with diabetes? Can you walk the walk?
