5077.0 Diabetes: Improving Secondary and Tertiary Prevention

Wednesday, October 31, 2012: 8:30 AM - 10:00 AM
The purpose of this session is to present empirical evidence on the diabetes care management and antecedent factors that significantly impact the intermediate and ultimate outcomes for diabetes patients. Three presentations, one using secondary data and the remainig two using primary data drawn from prospective studies are included. All three have valuable learnings that can be readily adopted in practice and that both patients and providers can relate to. These interventions/findings can be expected to facilitate a major change in diabetes patients' mortality risk and quality of life, through changing care delivery practices, and by motivating more aggressive self management by diabetes affected individuals.
