Diabetic Education and Healthcare Professionals

Diabetes education is an integral component of the diabetes management and care, because diabetes requires day-to-day knowledge of nutrition, exercise, monitoring, and medication. A healthy diet is central to the management of diabetes. The aim of patient education is for people with diabetes to improve their knowledge, skills and confidence, enabling them to take increasing control of their own condition and integrate effective self-management into their daily lives. High-quality structured education can have an effect on health outcomes and can significantly improve quality of life. The potential benefits of an effective patient education programme for people with diabetes should include improving knowledge, health beliefs and lifestyle changes, improving patient outcomes - eg, weight, haemoglobin A1c (HbA1c), lipid levels, smoking and psychosocial changes, improving levels of physical activity, reducing the need for - and potentially better targeting of - medication and other items such as blood testing strips.
