Reach More Clients By Specializing in Diabetes Interventions
Diabetes has become an epidemic. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 30 million Americans have type 2 diabetes and another 84 million suffer from prediabetes. As the number of Americans with diabetes continues to rise at alarming rates, the demand for professionals who understand these clients and their specific needs is increasing.
Impacting Prediabetes and Diabetes Through Lifestyle Behavior Change explains how diabetes impacts the human body. Created by ACE Chief Science Officer Cedric X. Bryant, PhD, FACSM and presented by ACE Director of Science and Research Content Sabrena Jo, MS, this course will teach you effective lifestyle behavior-change strategies to prevent and manage prediabetes and type 2 diabetes. By acquiring the knowledge to serve this specialized population, exercise professionals, health coaches and other allied health professionals can become a valuable addition to the diabetic client’s healthcare team.
You will learn:
- Learn the prevalence and diagnostic criteria for prediabetes and diabetes mellitus (DM)
- Learn the pathophysiology and complications of DM
- Learn effective lifestyle intervention strategies for clients with DM
- Learn basic strategies for coaching behavior change to drive program success
As a registered nurse, this is pretty basic information but if you have no background in the field, it is a good starter.
