Working Together to Manage Diabetes: Tools and Strategies for Pharmacy, Podiatry, Optometry, and Dentistry

Meeting Description:

You Can Make a Difference. You and other providers of pharmacy, podiatry, optometry, and dentistry (PPOD) are well positioned to advise and educate your patients about diabetes control and prevention. You may be the first to see a person with or at risk for diabetes.

Learn from PPOD professionals who have worked collaboratively in their communities to better care for patients at risk for diabetes and those who already have diabetes. This webinar will provide a “quick course” on diabetes and how PPOD health care providers can collaborate and make cross-disciplinary treatment referrals. The webinar speakers will: 

  • Explore team care concepts.
  • Provide tips on communicating with patients.
  • Introduce strategies for collaboration and cross-disciplinary treatment among PPOD providers and the rest of the diabetes care team.
  • Share information about the PPOD Toolkit and additional PPOD training, support and evaluation resources available from the NDEP.

This webinar will include a provider from each of the PPOD specialties.
