Wayne HealthCare Diabetes Self-Management Education Renews AADE Accreditation

Wayne HealthCare Diabetes Self-Management Education recently renewed its status as an accredited diabetes education program by the American Association of Diabetes Educators. This allows residents in and around Darke County increased access to critical diabetes education services.

Diabetes education as a collaborative process through which people with or at risk for diabetes gain the knowledge and skills needed to modify behavior and successfully self-manage the disease and its related conditions. It is provided by diabetes educators.

“Diabetes education provides the tools individuals need for the day to day management of their diabetes. The diabetes education program meets individuals were they are in their diabetes care, while providing education and support,” said program educator Karen Droesch RD, LD, CDE.

“Trends show that diabetes education is moving into the community, so AADE’s accreditation program was created, in part, to encourage diabetes education where the patient is seeking care,” said Leslie E. Kolb, RN, BSN, MBA, Program Director, Diabetes Education Accreditation Program. “Diabetes Self-Management Education at Wayne HealthCare is exactly the type of program we envisioned when we set up our accreditation program in 2009.”
