Integrating Technology into Diabetes Education

Committed to providing state-of-the-art, individualized care for children, adolescents and adults with diabetes, Winthrop recently hosted “Integration of Emerging Technology into Diabetes Education,” a hands-on program designed to challenge Winthrop’s Certified Diabetes Educators to use existing and emerging technology when teaching patients about diabetes self-management. Presented by Marcia Draheim, RN, CDE, Past President of the American Association of Diabetes Educators and President of Draheim Dimensional Presentations, the program’s pragmatic focus helped Winthrop’s Diabetes Educators develop ways to integrate emerging and existing technology into their diabetes education services. Organized through the Winthrop Diabetes and Obesity Institute, the program’s participants included Certified Diabetes Educators from Winthrop’s Diabetes Education Center as well as members of Winthrop’s Pediatric Diabetes Education Program, Cardiovascular Medical Associates’ Diabetes Education Program, Winthrop’s Division of Endocrinology Comprehensive Center for Diabetes Care, and the Hospital-wide Insulin Safety Committee.
