The Alliance of Continuing Education in the Health Professions (ACEHP) recently recognized the American Diabetes Association (ADA) for its efforts to educate the public about diabetes and raise funds for educational programs and research.
ADA received ACEHP's 2016 Award for Outstanding Innovation in Continuing Professional Development for ADA's Diabetes INSIDE program, which is a joint initiative provided with assistance from Intelligent Medical Decisions Inc. (iMD).
Diabetes INSIDE is a comprehensive program that provides training for health care workers on how to use new science, equipment and methods that have been tested and proven effective. With this training, providers are equipped to change processes in their clinical systems and provide better care for the diabetes patients they treat.
The program is being used in several U.S. health care facilities.
"The success of this initiative is measured through the improvement of patient outcomes due to professional education and quality improvement as evidenced by the clinical data," Kristine Paschalis, ADA director of professional education accreditation, said.
Diabetes INSIDE is one of several programs offered by the ADA, which serves hundreds of communities nationwide. For more information, visit www.diabetes.org.
