Diabetes self-management education (DSME), training, and support is the cornerstone of optimal care and outcomes. A patient-centered, team-based approach to diabetes care provides the essential components from key healthcare professionals, necessary for patients to receive, learn, comprehend, and implement the self-management education that is imperative to control their disease.
Competence in the science, theory, and research is an underpinning of diabetes education. With this grounding, those responsible for DSME begin the art of their work: using their talents, personalities, and gifts in a therapeutic manner and integrating personal meaning and values into meaningful interactions with patients and clients.
The Art and Science of Diabetes Self-Management Education Desk Reference, 4th Ed., is a definitive, up-to-date, and comprehensive resource covering the key concepts, skills, and strategies to deliver diabetes education, management, and support.
