Excellent diabetes patient teaching resources

  1. 3 Free online patient teaching resources by Becton Dickinson. I am very impressed by the quality. These resources are readily accessible and the content is presented in a manner that is easily understood. (Also offers patient teaching materials in Spanish):

    You can get a free Diabetes-Cardiovascular Disease tool kit to help your patients reduce their risk of death by calling 1-800-DIABETES (1-800-342-2383). It comes on CD-ROM or hard copy. This is a joint project of the American Diabetes Association, the American College of Cardiology, and the Preventive Cardiovascular Nurse Association. It includes reproducible patient education materials that are related to diabetes and heart disease. This was advertised in the latest issue of Nursing 2006 and thought some of you who are thinking ahead might be interested in obtaining this free patient teaching information. Never know when you or a fellow student might need it for a patient teaching project!

    diabetes care and patient education

    perhaps more than any other chronic disease process, diabetes management requires substantial and ongoing self-care activity on the part of the patient or caregiver. for example, people with diabetes often need to test blood glucose several times a day. many need to know how to administer insulin and to frequently adjust dosages. at the very least, people with diabetes continually contend with lifestyle choices related to the food they eat, the activity they engage in and demands upon their time and energy. because the self-care needs of the patient with diabetes are significant, nursing care is most effective when it enables the patient to reach an optimal level of independence based upon individual need.
