What is Diabetes Education
Diabetes Education is also known as diabetes self-management training (DSMT) or diabetes self-management education (DSME).
The goal of education is for people with or at risk for diabetes to gain the knowledge and skills needed to modify their behavior and successfully self-manage the disease and its related conditions.
Diabetes education can take place in a group or one-on-one setting as part of an accredited education program.
