Diabetes Self-Management Education Programs (DSME)

Diabetes Self-Management Education is a critical element of care for all people living with diabetes and is necessary to prevent or delay the complications of diabetes. Diabetes Self-Management Education and Support Programs are offered as outpatient or community based programs designed for adults, children, and seniors with Type 1 or Type 2 Diabetes.

How does someone receive diabetes education?

Diabetes education is usually prescribed by a primary care doctor who writes a referral for diabetes education (sometimes called diabetes self-management training). Diabetes education programs are found in a variety of places – hospital outpatient facilities, clinics, doctor’s offices, to name a few – and staffed by diabetes educators. These specialists are healthcare professionals – often nurses, dietitians or pharmacists – who focus on all aspects of diabetes care, and are also skilled in counseling, education and communication.
