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 work-shops to practice building healthier plates and increase awareness and better understand what to eat, and how to prepare it. Many patients attributed lack of understanding on what to eat and a factor in worsening diabetes control.
