Are you a Nurse, Pharmacist, or Dietitian who works with patients who have diabetes? Become a Certified Diabetes Outpatient Educator (CDOE) and learn how to better help your patients with diabetes.
Diabetes educators are healthcare professionals who focus on educating people with and at risk for diabetes and related conditions to achieve behavior change goals which, in turn, lead to better clinical outcomes and improved health status. Diabetes educators apply in-depth knowledge and skills in the biological and social sciences, communication, counseling, and educational fields to provide self-management education/self-management training.
Services provided by diabetes educators are eligible for third party reimbursement. In addition to coverage for diabetes self-management training/education (DSMT/E), services for discipline-specific counseling, such as medical nutrition therapy provided by dietitians/nutritionists, or medication therapy management services provided by pharmacists are available.
The CDOE organization assists their educators by providing continuing education programs with the latest therapies and technologies related to diabetes. CDOEs network with one another and collaborate to share best practices for diabetes education.
The CDOE Certification Course and Exam are only held once each year, and space is limited - Apply now to get a seat!
