Foot Care and Diabetes Care: A Webinar with Dr. Paul Liswood

View a recording of this webinar. No recording key needed.

Proper foot exams are a vital part of diabetes care, yet nearly 85% of amputations are precipitated by unchecked foot ulcers among people with diabetes.

For those who have or are at risk of diabetes, a podiatrist can detect signs and symptoms of the disease and provide treatments that help to prevent lower-limb amputations. A recent Thomson Reuters health care study concludes that doctors of podiatric medicine are critical to saving limbs from amputation, which can happen as a result of untreated complications from diabetes.

Join us for a webinar presented by Dr. Paul Liswood of the New York State Podiatric Medical Association. Dr. Liswood will review findings from the Thomson Reuters study on the impact of podiatric intervention on preventing amputations.

When: Thursday, February 16th
8:00 a.m. – 9:00 a.m.

Foot Care and Diabetes Care: A Webinar with Podiatrist Dr. James R. Christina

View a recording of this webinar. No recording key needed.

Proper foot exams are a vital part of diabetes care, yet nearly 85% of amputations are precipitated by unchecked foot ulcers among people with diabetes. In New York State, as many as 5,000 amputations are performed every year on diabetes patients. Unfortunately, patients commonly have more than one amputation over time.

However, diabetes education interventions have been associated with decreased risk of lesions on the feet, better self foot care, and reduced risk of ulceration and amputation by up to 50%.

In this NYSHealth-sponsored webinar, Dr. James R. Christina, the American Podiatric Medical Association’s Director of Scientific Affairs, reviews the findings of an important Thomson Reuters study on the impact of podiatric intervention on preventing amputations.

Diabetes and Depression Within the Latino Community: A Webinar With Dr. Leopoldo J. Cabassa

View a recording of this webinar. No recording key is required.

According to a 2011 study published in General Hospital Psychiatry by Dr. Leopoldo Cabassa and his colleagues, African Americans and Hispanics with common mental health conditions, such as depression and substance use disorders, report higher rates of diabetes than their white counterparts. In fact, 10-30% of people with diabetes report depressive disorders, and substance use increases the risk for diabetic complications.

In this NYSHealth-sponsored webinar, Cabassa discusses the intersection of diabetes and depression. He also addresses care coordination issues for minority populations, including how to address cultural issues around diabetes and depression in real world settings.

Incorporating Self Management Goal Setting with the Patient into a Routine Visit

CLICK HERE TO VIEW RECORDING

Recording Details

Download Presentations

Dr. Doug Rahner, Medical Director, and Tricia Lyman, Collaborative Coordinator of Family Health Network of Central New York, Inc. co-facilitate a webinar about incorporating self-management goals for patients with diabetes in an office visit. The purpose of self-management goal setting is to aid and inspire patients to become informed about their conditions and take an active role in their treatment. Helping patients and families manage chronic conditions is an idea whose time has come. Many patients do not understand what their doctors have told them and do not participate in decisions about their care, which leaves them ill prepared to make daily decisions and take actions that lead to good management. Others are not yet even aware that taking an active role in managing their condition can have a big impact on how they feel and what they are able to do. Enabling patients to make good choices and sustain healthy behaviors requires a collaborative relationship, a new health partnership between health care providers and teams, and patients and their families; a partnership that supports patients in building the skills and confidence they need to lead active and fulfilling lives.

The goal of the webinar is to inspire the participants to design, implement, and eventually share how self management goal setting is incorporated in medical appointments for their patients with diabetes in their practices.

Recording Details

Download Presentations

 

Dr. Diana Berger, a diabetes and lifestyle medicine specialist, will facilitate a webinar about shared medical appointments (SMA), often referred to as a “group visit,” for patients with diabetes. In a SMA, a group of 10-15 patients meets with a physician, behaviorist, medical assistant, nurse, and dedicated documenter for 90 minutes. Patient participation and peer support is an integral part of this team-based approach to care in which the care team facilitates discussion rather than lecturing. SMAs can improve clinical outcomes, increase patient and clinician satisfaction, improve access to care, and boost a physician’s productivity. This innovative practice model is efficient, cost-effective, and potentially profitable for a practice. Hear Dr. Elizabeth Molina-Ortiz, Diabetes Medical Director at the Institute for Family Health, present on how they were able to successfully implement SMA in their busy practice.

The goal of the webinar is to inspire the participants to design, implement, and evaluate shared medical appointments for their patients with diabetes in their practices.

  • Use Microsoft Office Live Meeting Replay for quicker downloads

Culturally sensitive interventions are an effective way to overcome some of the barriers to medical nutrition therapy. To facilitate positive health outcomes and maximize adherence, health care professionals must integrate evidenced-based nutrition recommendations into the patient’s dietary practices and food preferences. Cultural competency encompasses cultural awareness, knowledge and skill.

Upon diagnosis, physicians and nurses are in a unique position to make initial nutrition recommendations to patients prior to their first consultation with a registered dietitian. The goals of this session are: to provide non-dietetic professionals with key nutrition counseling strategies that work in clinical practice; to apply cultural specific communication tools to patients from different cultures; and to apply a cultural food practice model.

SPEAKER:
Sharon Saydah, PhD
Center for Disease Control and Prevention, National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, Division of Diabetes TranslationDespite decades of public health and medical interventions, diabetes has remained one of the top 10 leading causes of death in the United States. Surprisingly, little is know about the extend of socioeconomic differences in diabetes-related mortality, due in large part of the paucity of data sources that contain health, mortality, as well as robust socioeconomic information. This website will discuss an approach to address some of the previous data limitations by examining socioeconomic differences in diabetes-related mortality. The webcast presentation will focus on a study by Saydah and Lochner that was published in the May/June issue of Public Health Reports (p. 377-88) that uses nationally representative data sources and demonstrates the socioeconomic gradient in diabetes-related mortality in the U.S.

 

Certified Diabetes Educators – Accessing an Untapped Resource

The number of New Yorkers with diabetes has more than doubled in the last decade, to over 1.7 million, and diabetes is the only chronic disease that continues to grow in prevalence. Certified Diabetes Educators (CDEs) have been shown to play an important role in helping people prevent and manage diabetes and its complications.

At the same time, there is a dearth of CDEs in New York State. A March 2010 NYS Health Foundation/Center for Workforce Studies policy brief found that CDEs are not serving New Yorkers with the highest burden of disease, and that demand for their services is limited due to lack of physician and patient awareness of the competencies of CDEs.

Please join us for a webinar with Gerald Bernstein, M.D., and Marina Krymskya, R.N., M.S., A.N.P., CDE, of the Friedman Diabetes Institute. They will discuss the value of collaborative care between physicians and CDEs, and the value of reimbursement for this kind of care.

View a recording of this webinar. No recording key needed

This Community Health Care Association of New York State (CHCANYS) webinar examines the experiences, challenges, and lessons learned in creating and administrating a diabetes patient navigation program. Topics include the training of community health workers (CHW) as patient navigators, both in core competencies and health-specific specialization, and on reimbursement challenges.

Gayathri Chandran, coordinator at the Care Management Program, and Sergio Matos, executive director at the Community Health Worker Network of NYC, presents the webinar as part of the CHCANYS Diabetes Learning Series. Few programs have utilized navigators to address the growing epidemic of diabetes. Chosen in 2008 as one of six sites to pilot the Health Resources & Services Administration’s Patient Navigator Demonstration Project, Lutheran Family Health Centers piloted its program on a cohort of uncontrolled Type 2 and gestational diabetics, and children at risk for diabetes due to obesity and/or family history. The program recruited and retained seven CHWs as patient navigators; reached over 900 patients; and designed a system for identification of eligible patients, documenting outcomes, and creating recognition for navigators within the health system.
