Diabetes is a pervasive complicating diagnosis in many areas of clinical practice. For therapy and nursing staff, no matter the presenting diagnosis of the client, diabetes can make an appearance.
Understanding the varying causes, presentations and prognoses of different diabetic diagnoses; the complications that a therapist/nurse should be aware of; focused, disease-specific goal-setting and interventions that will promote health and functional outcomes; and client based labs and case studies will empower and update your approach to this condition.
The information we present here will allow the clinician to use the most current research to improve practice; and address some of the common complications that arise when working with people living with Diabetes.
This 0.3 CEU/3 Continuing Ed hour seminar discusses updated approaches, debunks myths related to treatment, and provides the participant with education to make informed decisions about the plan of care they design. Useful ‘cheat sheets’, resources and an extensive manual inform the package that is included with this practical and user-friendly seminar. We have adapted this information to then be immediately applicable to the clinician working in the home, with tools and resources that can be used the next day!
