Although the American Association of Diabetes Educators research shows diabetes education is generally highly regarded by doctors, nurse practicioners, and physician assistants, it is recommended on average for just 62% of patients.
Diabetes Education Focused on Success
While you manage your patients’ care, our diabetes educators focus on empowering them to manage their diabetes.
They teach, coach, and guide patients to understand their diabetes in their personal lives and work with them to set-
and meet goals to improve their health.
Diabetes Educators can play a vital role in growing your practice and caring for your patients.
Diabetes educators can help:
- Increase a practice’s efficiency by assuming time-consuming patient training, counseling and follow up duties
- Help a prescriber meet pay-for-performance and quality improvement goals
- Track and monitor patients’ care and provide status reports
- Help delay the onset of diabetes with prevention and self-management training for patients at high risk
- Monitor the response to treatment and make recommendations for treatment plan adjustments
- Assist with training patients on new devices and technology
- Be a role model for new clinicians beginning their educator career.

Why Refer for Diabetes Education?
Diabetes educators are licensed health care professionals—registered nurses, registered dietitians and pharmacists, among others—who specialize in helping people with diabetes understand how to best manage their diabetes.
The counseling and support that diabetes educators provide is known as diabetes education or diabetes self-management training (DSMT). Many of the healthcare professionals who provide these services also carry the designation Certified Diabetes Educator (CDE).
Diabetes Prevention Program
About 1 out of 3 American adults has prediabetes—that’s 86 million people.
People with prediabetes are at higher risk of heart attack, stroke, and type 2 diabetes.
Type 2 diabetes puts people at risk for many serious health problems, including: Heart attack, Stroke, Blindness, Kidney failure, and Loss of toes, feet, or legs. Fortunately, having prediabetes doesn’t guarantee a person will develop type 2 diabetes. Type 2 diabetes can be prevented. CDC-recognized diabetes prevention lifestyle change programs can help people prevent or delay type 2 diabetes and improve their overall health.
