As therapists, we have often involved in symptomatic care of diabetes-related complications. This happens mostly when a patient is diagnosed with diabetes for several years. I would like to present this course with a perspective of involving therapists in not only the curative phase but also for the prevention of diabetes. This course helps PT and OT identify diabetes in an individual long before they are formally diagnosed. We, as allied health professionals, should be involved in the complete care of the patient from lifestyle modifications onwards to their long term physical and mental well being. This course will highlight the role of OTs in cognitive aspects and the role of PTs for customized exercise prescriptions for individual patient needs. We are far from one size fits all regimen of diet and exercise as far as management of diabetes is concerned. It takes a village to manage a patient with diabetes. I am hoping we take this awareness and share it with our medical colleagues, and seek involvement not just in symptomatic therapy but also in the prevention of disease processes.
The candidate will learn latest evidence based research, *special section on Covid-19 effect on diabetes, how to work together as a PT/OT team as well as individual roles that are life changing for the patient.
Upon completion of this course, you will be able to learn:
- Gain an insight about the challenges faced by the patients in understanding about diabetes due to limited resources available and lack of psychosocial assistance.
- Empower the clinicians with discussing and addressing the need of the patient facing with challenges with their diagnosis.
- Understand the role of PT and OT, and how they can help the patients and their families both physically and psychosocially. To bring awareness to medical fraternity about utilizing therapies for the diagnosis of Diabetes, not just for complications of.
- Use the evidence based strategies for treatments and customizing to patient and family needs.
