Engaging the Disengaged Patient

Engaging the Disengaged Patient

Chronically problematic self-management is one of the major contributors to poor metabolic outcomes in diabetes. Patients are often unable or unwilling to take medications regularly, follow a diabetes-friendly style of eating, exercise regularly, check blood glucose levels as prescribed and/or return for regular appointments. This is rarely due to a lack of motivation; indeed, almost everyone would prefer to live a long and healthy life. Given the limited time available for clinical consultations, what can the busy health care professional do to help patients address difficult obstacles such as diabetes distress, depression, and behavior change? During this webinar, William Polonsky, PhD, CDE, President and Founder of the Behavioral Diabetes Institute, shares research findings concerning poor motivation in diabetes care, describes techniques for assessing key contributors to patient disengagement, and presents practical methods for overcoming patient disengagement in diabetes clinical practice. This webinar was held in May 2015.

The Art of Storytelling and Use of Culturally-Adapted Tools to Educate on Diabetes Prevention

The Art of Storytelling and Use of Culturally-Adapted Tools to Educate on Diabetes Prevention

This webinar was held in September, 2013, and featured Ana Consuelo Matiella, MA; Alexis M. Williams, MPH, CHES; and Betsy Rodríguez, RN, MSN.

Storytelling can play a role in diabetes education and can influence self-efficacy, outcome expectations, risk perceptions and problem solving, resulting in improved self-care behaviors, particularly in vulnerable populations. Many cultures use storytelling to share wisdom. Stories create vivid mental images that encourage thinking and aid understanding and recall. Using storytelling as a teaching method and listening to patients’ own stories can enhance communication by building trust and understanding, especially when the patient and the diabetes educator have different backgrounds and life experiences.
