The Diabetes Education Center at St. Joseph's Wayne Hospital, the most comprehensive program in the area, adheres to the Standards of Care guidelines of the American Diabetes Association (ADA). The ADA has recognized the outpatient program for Quality Self-Management Education since 2002. The highly specialized, multidisciplinary professional staff will give you practical information to help you better control your diabetes.
The team of certified diabetes nurse educators work directly with each patient's physician to review the treatment plan for improved disease management, at the time of diagnosis, or after many years of struggling with diabetes. The team also includes a Registered Dietician who reviews the patient's dietary and cultural preferences and develops a plan to assure that individual nutritional needs are met.
