Annual CQI Report
Patients with Type 2 Diabetes who are referred to our Diabetes Self-Management Education (DSME) program responded to surveys requesting additional information and skills-building workshops to practice building healthier plates, increase awareness and better understand what to eat, and how to prepare it. Many patients attributed a lack of understanding on what to eat and a factor in worsening diabetes control.
Summary of Results
81% Improvement from baseline | Reduction of 1.6% in A1c
