Diabetes Educator - Nurse Susie

 

Diabetes is a chronic, progressive disease that affects millions worldwide. The pattern of diabetes management has shifted to focus on empowering the person with diabetes to manage the disease successfully and to improve their quality of life. Diabetes self-management education is a collaborative process through which people with diabetes gain the knowledge and skills needed to modify their behaviour and to self-manage successfully the disease and its related conditions. Diabetes educators are health care professionals who apply in-depth knowledge and skills in the biological and social sciences, communication, counselling, and teaching to enable patients to manage daily and future challenges.
