Diabetes is a major health problem in the United States and worldwide. Hinkle (2019) estimates
that one in three adults may have the diagnosis of diabetes by the year 2050. Reducing the
burden of diabetes is a goal of Healthy People 2020 (2019). With this information in mind, the
successful management of diabetes depends on self-care and self-management of the person
diagnosed with the disease.
Patient teaching is very important to the management of diabetes. Correct use of insulin, selftesting of glucose, use of other technology such as insulin pumps, and vigilance about
preventing and detecting complications are key teaching topics.
Please choose one of the topics and develop a detailed teaching plan with an emphasis on selfmanagement. Be sure to include a collaborative suggestion for another professional who would
be involved in the teaching plan. Inclusion of culture, client developmental level, and socioeconomic factors should be considered.
