    • Description:
      Almost 26 million Americans have diabetes, and these rates are increasing.1 Now it is more important than ever for health care professionals, like you, to come together to provide diabetes care, decrease the risk for complications of diabetes, and manage medication therapy. You Can Make a Difference. You and other providers of pharmacy, podiatry, optometry, and dentistry (PPOD) are well positioned to advise and educate your patients about diabetes control and prevention. You may be the first to see a person with, or at risk for, diabetes. You also have the opportunity to: • Give consistent diabetes messages. • Recognize early danger signs. • Promote the team approach to care. Integrated, comprehensive care benefits everyone involved—patients, health care providers, and the community. This Guide Will Show You How. This online resource, Working Together to Manage Diabetes: A Guide for Pharmacy, Podiatry, Optometry, and Dentistry, shows how practitioners in the four disciplines presented here—pharmacy, podiatry, optometry, and dentistry—can work collaboratively with each other, as well as with all other members of the health care team, such as primary health care providers, physician assistants, nurse educators, and community health workers to treat people with diabetes (or in some cases even prevent type 2 diabetes).
