Proven Keys to Ensure DSME - MNT Program Sustainability
PROVEN KEYS TO ENSURE DSME - MNT PROGRAM SUSTAINABILITY
(IT'S NOT JUST ABOUT REIMBURSEMENT!)
Diabetes self-management education (DSME) and medical nutrition therapy (MNT) are critical, evidence-based components of diabetes management as they significantly improve diabetes outcomes. Three key things have to occur for patients to realize these improved outcomes, and for clinicians to do what they do best: 1) providers have to refer diabetes patients to educators; 2) patients have to attend all the initial and follow-up program visits to master their self-care behaviors; and 3) clinicians have to think like a business and act like a business to ensure their program sustainability. If you are struggling with how to increase referrals, have clients eagerly keep all their visit appointments and for your programs to thrive…and not barely limp along….this lively and interactive presentation is for you!
Upon successful completion of this two-hour course, the participant should be able to:
  • List 4 effective promotions for DSME/MNT programs.


  • Name the 3 key target markets of DSME/MNT programs.


  • Name 3 strategies to increase patient attendance in DSME/MNT programs.


  • Name 10 of 22 effective strategies for sustaining DSME/MNT programs.


  • Name the 5 components of a DSME/MNT Business Plan within which the strategies are embedded.

FOR CDEs: This Course Qualifies for CE Credit!

To satisfy the requirement for renewal of certification according to the National Certification Board for Diabetes Educators (NCBDE, www.ncbde.org), courses must relate to diabetes and be part of the list of recognized providers of the NCBDE. The Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR) is listed as an NCBDE recognized provider. Because Dietitian Central has been granted accreditation by the CDR, it therefore meets the criteria as an approved provider of CEs for CDEs by the NCBDE. The NCBDE does not directly approve continuing education for any specific webinar or self study course.
