The Bartlett Regional Hospital diabetes self-management education program received continued recognition from the American Diabetes Association recently.
The program, originally recognized in June, 2007, offers diabetes education services to patients.
The ADA Education Recognition effort, begun in the fall of 1986, is a voluntary process which assures approved education programs have met the national standards for diabetes self-management education programs.
Self-management education is an essential component of diabetes treatment. The participant in an ADA-recognized program will be taught, as needed, self-care skills that will promote better management of the diabetes treatment regimen.
