As we look forward to beginning a new year, health care professionals can work with their patients to make a News Year’s Resolution to better health in 2016 and help them take steps to prevent or delay type 2 diabetes. NDEP’s online toolkit, GAME PLAN for Preventing Type 2 Diabetes: A Toolkit for Health Care Professionals and Teams, can help you identify, counsel, and support patients at risk for type 2 diabetes.
The GAME PLAN Toolkit empowers health care professionals in both clinical and community settings by providing them with the information they need to identify prediabetes and facilitate effective interventions with their patients.
The GAME PLAN Toolkit is divided into the following sections:
- Prediabetes Screening: How and Why
- How to Talk with Patients About Their Prediabetes Diagnosis
- Help Your Patients Make Lifestyle Changes After a Prediabetes Diagnosis
- Reimbursement and Coding
- Facts and Statistics
