What’s a diabetes educator?
Diabetes educators are licensed healthcare professionals—registered nurses, dietitians, pharmacists, among others—who specialize in educating people with diabetes about their condition. The training, counseling and support that diabetes educators provide to patients is known as diabetes education or diabetes self-management training (DSMT). Many professionals who provide these services carry the designation Certified Diabetes Educator (CDE).
Diabetes educators serve both as independent contractors and employees for primary care practices. Having a diabetes educator on your team can provide critical support to increase practice productivity, help meet performance and quality improvement goals and track and monitor your patients’ progress.
