Working Together to Manage Diabetes Toolkit


Help your patients with diabetes get the care they need. Too many people with diabetes are not getting annual foot, eye, and oral exams, or managing their medications. You have the power to change that. The enhanced Working Together to Manage Diabetes Toolkit empowers pharmacists, podiatrists, optometrists, dentists, and other providers to deliver more integrated care for patients with, or at risk for, diabetes. When you work in tandem with other health care providers, you become more effective at recognizing the early danger signs of diabetes, decreasing the risk of complications, and managing medication therapy.
