This webinar is offered through a collaboration with the IHS Division of Diabetes Treatment and Prevention, with the recording available on the DDTP website at https://www.ihs.gov/diabetes/training/cmece-online-edu/diabetes-online-cme-ce-education/.
Although traditional food ways have a long history of importance and use in health maintenance and disease prevention and treatment in AI/AN communities, they are often underestimated as a part of health services. This session will provide an overview of the potential contributions of the Indigenous diet to health, wellness, and people-centered health care. Discussion of appropriate integration of traditional food ways into health care and education will be provided, including specific examples and tools for diabetes care and self-management education.
Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
1. Describe the contribution of Indigenous concepts in patient education in supporting motivation for patient change.
2. Provide diabetes education in a way that encourages use of traditional food ways.
3. Identify aspects of traditional Native American lifestyles that may contribute to improved health and well-being.
