Preventing Type 2 Diabetes Tool Kit

Mar 27, 2015
 

 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the American Medical Association (AMA) have created a toolkit that health care teams can use as a guide to Screen, Test and Act Today (STAT) by referring patients to in-person or online diabetes prevention programs. You can download a complete toolkit at the Prevent Diabetes STAT website. The kit includes: a brief overview of the evidence-based diabetes prevention program and a rationale for engaging with the program; short summaries of studies conducted over the last 15 years, creating the evidence base for the prevention of diabetes through lifestyle change interventions; a questionnaire for patients to learn about their risk for prediabetes while helping care teams identify patients at great risk; and a patient handout for use in waiting areas to increase awareness and pave the way for conversations about screening, testing and referral. The kit also assists clinicians in advocating to their colleagues about the value of incorporating diabetes prevention screening and referral into their practices.
