Diabetes Self-Management Education (DSME) is a critical component that helps people with diabetes, or newly diagnosed diabetics, learn how to successfully manage their disease. The goal of the education is to help people practice self-care behaviors every day and be as healthy as possible.
DSME is delivered by healthcare professionals and is traditionally focused on medical management of the disease. DSME can be up to 10 sessions with at least 2 of those sessions being one-on-one education.
DSME can be for both Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes. For more information about diabetes, please click here. Wondering why you should see a Diabetes Educator? Find out more.
