Don’t let the title fool you … Credentialled Diabetes Educators (CDE) do a lot more than educate people with diabetes! They also review their diabetes management, provide information, resources and free meters … show them how to get the most out of their blood glucose monitoring, show people how to change health behaviours and counsel and support them to live a healthy life. Their expertise includes the care of people with type 1, type 2 and gestational diabetes.
Many health professionals are unaware of the variety of ways CDEs help people with diabetes. Take the quiz to see how much you know about the the role of a CDE – you’ll also be learning along the way!
Then you will know when to refer people with diabetes to a Credentialled Diabetes Educator for some extra help.
