Englewood (N.J.) Hospital and Medical Center recently was awarded the American Diabetes Association Education Recognition Certificate for a quality diabetes self-management education program.
“Self-management is a critical component of diabetes treatment,” Mary O’Connor, RN, BSN, CDE, diabetes program manager at EHMC, said in a news release. “We are dedicated to helping our patients and their families gain the everyday skills they need to successfully manage their diabetes, through a combination of team support, clinical guidance and education.”
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, diabetes is the country’s seventh-leading cause of death. EHMC’s program covers a range of topics for patients with diabetes and pre-diabetes, including weight control, carbohydrate counting, exercise, management of blood sugars, medication and stress.
The certificate signals EHMC meets the national standards for diabetes self-management education programs and that its healthcare team can provide participants with a comprehensive, individualized treatment plan.
