National Diabetes Education Program (NDEP) released updated Guiding Principles

NDEP releases updated Guiding Principles 

Providing diabetes care can be challenging. While there are strategies that work, there is opportunity to enhance the uptake of proven therapies and prevention of type 2 diabetes. The large health and financial impact of diabetes and the gaps in achievement of treatment and prevention goals prompted the National Diabetes Education Program (NDEP) to establish Guiding Principles for the Care of People with or at Risk for Diabetes.
These Guiding Principles aim to identify and synthesize areas of general agreement among existing guidelines to help guide primary care providers and health care teams to deliver quality care to adults with or at risk for diabetes.
This recent update reflects new and changing evidence that has evolved over the last several years, including

  • Emphasis on the importance of diabetes self-management education and support and patient-centered care using shared decision-making and individualized care
  • Development of a new Principle 6: Address Overweight and Obesity in the Management of Diabetes

To read the 10 principles, including how to identify people with undiagnosed diabetes and encourage lifestyle modification for people with diabetes, download your free copy of Guiding Principles (PDF) today.
