DE0131: Diabetes Online CDE: Fresh Food Pharmacy - Changing How We Take Care of Patients With Food Insecurity
Food insecurity, a phenomenon that affects the entire household, is also an important contributor to overall health. Even after adjusting for socioeconomic status, food insecure adults are more likely to have diabetes and have difficulty with diabetes self-management and other health conditions. This training will address implications for health care and education that is offered to patients including steps the clinician/educator can take to screen for food insecurity and identify resources to help clients obtain healthful foods in AI/AN communities. The session invites health team members to think of ways to be more responsive to the needs of patients and take steps to improve services.
The recording of the live webinar will be available on the Division of Diabetes web site for three years. The live and recorded sessions of our trainings are all available at the following https://www.ihs.gov/diabetes/training/cmece-online-edu/diabetes-online-cme-ce-education/.
