2020 FNCE: Empowering People with Diabetes: Putting Diabetes SelfManagement Consensus Principles to Work
Academy Center for Professional Development
Recorded pre-approved CPE Activity: 175 Lectures/Webinars
RDNs are essential in the care of people with diabetes. Research supports that the care provided by RDNs improves clinical outcomes, enhances quality of life and reduces costs. Medical nutrition therapy complements the care provided by physicians and other providers as well as diabetes self-management education and support (DSMES) services. A collaborative writing group representing the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, American Diabetes Association, American Association of Diabetes Educators, American Academy of Family Physicians, American Academy of Physician Assistants, American Association of Nurse Practitioners, and American Pharmacists Association recently published the 2020 DSMES Joint Consensus Report. This presentation provides a road map for RDNs to implement diabetes self-management interventions at four critical times; identifies clinical, behavioral and psychosocial topics to address at the four times; summarizes benefits of DSMES and MNT; and provides guidance on solutions to access barriers and reimbursement.

Describe the current role of RDNs in management of persons with diabetes and the benefits of DSMES
