The goal of this activity is to increase the capacity of diabetes educators, health educators, community health workers and others who work with people with and at risk for diabetes in community and clinical settings to implement evidence based education and communication strategies to improve diabetes prevention and self-management.
Learn how to avoid the blame game for people with diabetes, and yourself. Instead, learn how behavioral science can help you and people with diabetes overcome challenges in the environment and achieve lasting lifestyle change! We’ll discuss ways to increase person-centered communication, self-efficacy, and supportive provider-patient relationships without judgment and blame. This webinar will also identify self-care behaviors for providers to help them address their own emotional needs as they help people with diabetes manage their condition.
After completing this webinar, participants will be able to:
• Identify barriers and facilitators that may affect behavior change among persons with diabetes
• Describe how the provider-patient relationship can help people with diabetes to make behavior change
• Discuss self-care activities for healthcare providers to reduce provider burnout and fatigue
