Diabetes can be a difficult disease for our clients to manage on a day-to-day basis.
Two of our volunteer nurses, Shelley & Sandra, have completed training to be facilitators for the Diabetes Conversation Map® program which enables adults to take an active role in their own health education. Our clients with diabetes have expressed a tremendous desire to participate.
At each meeting the nurses use visual tools to engage a small group of diabetic patients in discussions about key topics in diabetes. The sessions focus on participant-directed discussions and shared problem-solving. By participating in the learning, these adults formulate behavior changes needed for better health and diabetes management.
Live Oak Clinic offers two Diabetes Conversation Map sessions a month; one for Spanish speakers & one for English speakers.
