Promoting Diabetes Patient Care | Castellana

According to the American Diabetes Association (2022) diabetes patients are greatly influenced by healthcare providers who impact their lives. As health ambassadors, we recommend the following tips to promote the best care for our patients:

  • Ensure that your treatment decisions are accepted and understood by patients.
  • Consider creating or referring community support groups for diabetes management as needed.
  • Lead care efforts with a holistic, patient-centered approach, according to individual needs.
  • Share tools or educational material that allow patients and/or family members to know how to avoid complications of diabetes.
  • Examine whether the patient is complying with their medical treatment according to recommendations offered.

Implement “active listening” strategies to find possible doubts or needs that have not yet been addressed by the provider.

Although the circumstances of each human being can be diverse, health providers like you are key for our patients to achieve a full quality of life. American Diabetes Association (2022) Standards of Medical Care in Diabetes—2022.  Retrieved October 17, 2022.
