When I was actively doing diabetes classes, one thing that I tried to insist on was to get the patient’s entire family to attend an education session. I found that I could get part of the family most of the time. I also found if I could do it during non-work hours, I could improve the attendance, and if it was only an hour or so participation increased. This goes against some of our common diabetes programs, as they are usually too long to get everyone there.

Now we see some new information on how to take advantage of family attendance at these programs.

Our current intern, Peter Jay Won, Pharm.D. Candidate, University of Florida, has reviewed over half a dozen studies to bring you information on why you should try to get the whole family to attend some of the classes.
