OVERVIEW AND INSTRUCTIONS

Diabetes is a serious chronic disease affecting approximately thirteen out of every 100 U.S. adults age 20 and older, but, unfortunately, approximately a third of them have not been diagnosed (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2011). It is costly in both economic terms and its impact on an individual's quality of life. Clinical trials and outcomes research report that diabetes medical nutrition therapy (MNT) provided by Registered Dietitian Nutritionists (RDNs) and delivered using a variety of nutrition interventions and multiple encounters is effective in improving glycemic and other metabolic outcomes (Pastors, 2012). However, for RDNs to be effective clinicians and educators, requires not only knowledge and skills in diabetes nutrition therapy, but also knowledge and skills in the overall management of diabetes and in effective diabetes education and counseling. By developing these competencies, MNT can be integrated effectively into diabetes management. This allows the person with diabetes flexibility in lifestyle and improved quality of life while still maintaining excellent metabolic control. The goal of this continuing education program is to provide the information and skills needed by dietetic/nutrition professionals to develop these competencies.

Chapter 1 discusses the classifications, diagnosis, and screening of diabetes. Chapter 2 outlines lifestyle strategies for the prevention of diabetes. Chapter 3 reviews the management of diabetes. It begins by reviewing how monitoring of diabetes management outcomes is done and used to achieve treatment goals. The section on MNT reviews the goals and expected outcomes of MNT and the nutrition-related strategies that have been shown to be effective. Also summarized are the roles of physical activity and medications, both glucose-lowering medications and insulin. Chapter 4 provides an overview of the acute complications of diabetes--hypo- and hyperglycemia--and the role of nutrition therapy in treatment and prevention. The long-term complications of diabetes and MNT for cardiovascular disease, hypertension, and nephropathy are discussed in chapter 5. Issues related to nutrition therapy for preexisting diabetes and pregnancy and for gestational diabetes are covered in chapter 6.

The implementation of MNT for diabetes is a primary responsibility for RDNs and is addressed in chapter 7. Implementation steps as outlined in the Nutrition Care Process include nutrition assessment, nutrition diagnosis, nutrition intervention (planning and implementation), nutrition monitoring, and evaluation (American Dietetic Association, 2011). Chapter 7 also includes a brief discussion of implementation of nutrition therapy in health care facilities. A case study provides the opportunity to apply the overall information gained from the learning program to life situations and is included after the final chapter.

This learning program is a level 2 Continuing Professional Education (CPE) program approved for 18 continuing education units (CPEUs). That means that the reader has general knowledge of literature and professional practice in the area covered. The focus of the program is to enhance knowledge and application. To get the most benefit from this program, we suggest you adhere to the following four steps:
Step 1: Review the objectives for the learning program.
Step 2: Study each chapter. As you read, think of patients from your own practice who fit the situation described.
Step 3: Assess what you have learned by completing the self assessment instrument at the end of this learning program.
Step 4: Compare your answers to the answer key that has been provided. If you score at least 80% correct, you are ready to transfer your answers to the CONTINUING PROFESSIONAL EDUCATION REPORTING FORM If you scored less than 80% correct, re-read this learning program until you score at least 80% correct.
