Diabetes Self-Management Education

Diabetes is a serious disease with potentially life-threatening consequences. Proper nutrition, physical activity, regular visits to your doctor, and medication can help you control your blood sugar level. If you have just been told you have diabetes; your treatment plan has changed; you are not meeting your diabetes targets, or are pregnant or thinking about becoming pregnant, you will benefit by taking a self-management education class.

Diabetes education can help you learn to monitor blood sugar levels correctly, avoid highs and lows, and plan your meals and snacks.

Diabetes Self-Management Education (DSME) is the cornerstone of care for all individuals with diabetes who want to achieve successful health outcomes and avoid complications. The ten-week program is conducted in health care settings, such as physicians’ offices and clinics, pharmacies and hospital outpatient settings.

Patient and Provider Resources

The EPICC Program has developed several resources to assist both patients and providers.

For Providers:

Diabetes Self-Management Education (DSME) is the active, ongoing process of facilitating the knowledge, skill, and ability necessary for diabetes self-care. The overall objectives of DSME are to support informed decision-making and improved self-care behaviors, encourage effective problem-solving and active collaboration with the healthcare team, and improve clinical outcomes, health status, and quality of life. If you are interested in learning more or receiving a scholarship to become an accredited DSME provider to provide quality education to your patients with diabetes, and get reimbursed for doing it, click here to view the Utah DSME Toolkit!
