EZStart

Register here to order the Joslin EZStart Kit, a free, easy-to-use healthcare professional and patient education kit aimed at guiding insulin initiation.

The Joslin EZStart Kit provides patient education materials and tools to assist you in delivering consistent and informed diabetes care information to your patients.

The information provided in and by this site is intended only for healthcare professionals in the United States.

 

Please take a few minutes to review the Joslin EZStart Kit contents:


• Flipcharts – A 30-page tool for patient education, complete with talking point reminders (on the reverse of each page) for covering key messages. The Flipcharts are in both English and Spanish.

• Handouts - 15 reproducible masters (in both English and Spanish), covering important topics such as diabetes care plans, blood glucose self-monitoring, medications and insulin. These handouts provide convenient take-home reminders to reinforce important concepts covered in the flipcharts. Please feel free to make copies for your patients.

• Resource Manual – A reference for the primary care provider and medical office staff, including a selection of Joslin Clinical Guidelines, assessment and documentation tools with instructions on the initiation and use of insulin and aids to assist decision-making about insulin therapy, and reference information for referring patients to diabetes educators, registered dietitians and ADA Recognized Education programs.

We have received tremendous feedback from users of the Joslin EZStart Kit. The epidemic of diabetes makes the need for education resources and references greater than ever before. We hope that you and your staff find the enclosed materials of great relevance in the education of your patients.

This activity is supported by an educational grant from Pfizer Inc.
