Managing Complications of Diabetes

Green Clock Hours: 1.00

In the U.S., over 37 million people have diabetes, and about 20% are unaware they have it (CDC, 2022a). Patients with diabetes are at risk for several chronic diabetic-related complications. These complications include microvascular (e.g., neuropathy) and macrovascular (e.g., coronary artery disease) complications (Goyal & Jialal, 2022). The inconsistency of glucose levels paired with varying contributing factors, such as blood pressure, heart rate, blood cholesterol, weight, and serum uric acid, predispose people with diabetes to different types of complications (Ceriello & Prattichizzo, 2021). Coordinated patient care is important when managing the care of patients with diabetes. Healthcare professionals (HCPs) should have an understanding of the various diabetic-related complications to provide patient education on risk factors, prevention, and management strategies.

 

The goal of this course is to equip nurses, physical therapists, and occupational therapists with a general overview of how to manage chronic complications of diabetes.
