Diabetes care and education specialists interact with people with type 2 diabetes and related health complications where in some cases the disease and complications have manifested as a result of the individual having a higher weight. Although many diabetes care and education specialists have deep knowledge in caring for people with higher weight bodies, there are simply not enough of them to provide care to the number who need it. The entire care team should be educated to a validated level of understanding. Typically these types of courses have only been available to dietitians. This activity is open to all diabetes professionals and will educate the broad HCP interprofessional care team to apply best practices in caring for individuals with higher weight bodies.

Learning Outcome

Learners will have the tools, strategies, and confidence to provide compassionate, individualized care to the higher weight individuals that they serve.
