The New Beginnings Discussion Guide from the National Diabetes Education Program. https://www.cdc.gov/diabetes/ndep/pdfs/132-new-beginnings.pdf 

New Beginnings is focused on helping people with diabetes and their families manage the emotional impact of diabetes. Developed for use in diabetes education and support groups, the guide focuses on skills such as problem solving, positive coping, stress management and communication with caregivers and health care professionals

New Beginnings: Managing the Emotional Impact of Diabetes
New Beginnings: Managing the Emotional Impact of Diabetes Image

Learning to manage the ups and downs of living with a chronic disease like diabetes is essential. This series of audio programs from the National Diabetes Education Program (NDEP) focuses on managing the emotional impact of diabetes, and building positive, supportive relationships with family, friends, and health care providers. These issues are often overlooked but can have an impact on how people give and receive information about diabetes, whether they seek help, and, ultimately, what influences them to take action to manage their diabetes.

 

The New Beginnings Audio programs address the emotional impact of diabetes, the role of family and social support in diabetes self-management, and cultural considerations when addressing psychosocial and family support issues in people with diabetes. By the end of the programs, you will have a basic understanding of these issues and be prepared to use NDEP’s New Beginnings Discussion Guide in diabetes education and support groups.

Prediabetes: How Healthcare Providers Can Take Action
Prediabetes: How Healthcare Providers Can Take Action Image

We are facing an alarming health crisis in New York State. Thirty percent (30%) of adults in New York State have prediabetes and only 5.5% are aware of their status. Multiple studies have shown that diabetes can be prevented if it is diagnosed at the prediabetes stage. This is a window of opportunity for healthcare providers. Healthcare providers MUST diagnose prediabetes and be influential messengers about the fact that diabetes is preventable. 

Evaluation of the TCF7L2 Gene as a Predictor of Type 2 Diabetes

This is an on-line presentation designed to sharpen your epidemiological skills and enhance your knowledge on genomic variation and human diseases to train health professionals in the practical application of human genome epidemiology (HuGE), which translates gene discoveries to disease prevention by integrating population-based data on gene-disease relationships and interventions.  Students will acquire conceptual and practical tools for critically evaluating the growing scientific literature in specific disease areas.

Confronting Health Disparities in African American Communities
Confronting Health Disparities in African American Communities Image

Course Description:

More than one-third of U.S. adults (over 72 million people) and 17% of U.S. children are obese; substantial differences exist in obesity prevalence by race/ethnicity, and these differences vary by sex and age. The prevalence of obesity among adults from 2007-2010 was largest among African American women compared with white and Mexican American women and men. Obesity prevalence among African American adults was the largest compared to other race ethnicity groups.  Obesity increases the risk of many preventable health conditions, including heart disease, stroke and diabetes. African Americans live sicker and die younger than any other ethnic group in the nation.  African Americans have the largest death rates from heart disease and stroke compared with other racial and ethnic populations.  This program focuses on the reality of African-American health disparity-why it exists and the impact of environment, income and other determinants of health on the incidence of diabetes, obesity and heart disease within African American communities, and what can be done about it.

Pre-Diabetes: A Window of Opportunity for Intervention
Pre-Diabetes: A Window of Opportunity for Intervention Image

 Pre-diabetes or “border-line diabetic” is a condition that affects over 86 million people in America. With the high incidence of diabetes and its burden on the healthcare system, there is a greater push for preventive and public health measures to address the problem. Health education is at the cornerstone of this solution. This course will provide a general overview of pre-diabetes and its pathophysiology. It will discuss how it impacts the body and how lifestyle interventions as suggested by evidence-based research can play a role in its treatment. Additionally, this knowledge based course will provide insight about the role of the health educator in pre-diabetes education.

Diabetes, Distress, and Depression: Incorporating the Emotional Side of Diabetes Into Clinical Care
Diabetes, Distress, and Depression: Incorporating the Emotional Side of Diabetes Into Clinical Care Image

 Diabetes and depression have been associated with poor self-management behavior and poor clinical outcomes. However many unanswered questions remain about the links between diabetes and depression, leaving diabetes educators and clinicians struggling to find effective strategies to address these issues in their practices. What if our symptom-based approach to diagnosing depression in people with diabetes is too narrow? During this podcast, Dr. Lawrence Fisher invites clinicians to consider the broader construct of emotional distress which takes into account the context of living with diabetes including its management, other life stresses, and other contributors that can impact emotional well-being. Dr. Fisher will explore the construct of emotional distress, and suggest strategies for integrating the emotional side of diabetes into regular diabetes care. This approach can reduce confusion between depression and distress so that appropriate and targeted patient-centered interventions can occur.
