Diabetes Self Management Education and Support (DSMES)

Type 2 Joint Position Statement DSMES Toolkit Available!

A joint position statement defining the four times when a referral for diabetes self-management education and support (DSMES) is needed was developed by the American Association of Diabetes Educators, the American Diabetes Association and the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics in 2015.

A toolkit to assist providers working with people with diabetes includes visual algorithms, PowerPoint slide presentations and a flyer designed for people with diabetes. Two templates were included: a letter to convince providers to refer to the DSMES programs and an abstract template that provides background language to support submission to various educational forums.
