Meeting People with Diabetes in Their Space
Successful self-management stems from care that is personalized. It is incumbent on the diabetes care team to assess a person’s ability to understand and process health information, gain insight into their life experiences and social support, and most importantly, make efforts to meet a person in their cultural space. When the whole person is taken into context, care becomes person-centered and supportive, leading to improved outcomes and sustainable self-management. ADCES has created a variety of resources to help you understand key concepts in health literacy, numeracy and cultural competence.
