Diabetes continues to be a major health concern affecting millions of people across our nation and the world. The Center for Disease Control reported that from 1980-2007, the number of Americans diagnosed with diabetes tripled, from 5.6 -17.4 million. In that same period of time, the number of hospital discharges with diabetes as any-listed diagnosis more than doubled from 2.2-5.2 million. In this series, you will have the opportunity to learn from a national expert in the field who is caring for patients with diabetes every day as a Diabetes Nurse Practitioner and Certified Diabetes Educator. In the first session, we will explore best practices and nursing care challenges in the acute care setting. In the second part, the focus will be on how we can ease the transition of patients from admission to acute care to a safe discharge. Medication reconciliation and communication to the next provider are key elements of a smooth transition. This session will involve a discussion of strategies to provide the right information, self management education and follow up plan.
