  • Description:
    Historically, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC’s) National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP) has provided funding for state chronic disease programs for specific chronic conditions and risk factors, releasing separate funding opportunity announcements (FOAs) to address cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and obesity. However, chronic diseases have a high incidence of comorbidity, and the burden of these diseases has continued to rise. In recognition of these issues, CDC has adopted a more integrated approach to chronic disease prevention and control, increasing opportunities for coordination across related diseases and risk factors. This approach allows public health programs to work together to be more efficient and achieve more significant and lasting outcomes. One recent FOA that embraces this approach is the State Public Health Actions to Prevent and Control Diabetes, Heart Disease, Obesity and Associated Risk Factors and Promote School Health program (CDC-RFA-DP13-1305, hereafter referred to as 1305). Because state health departments are on the front lines of coordinated chronic disease public health prevention efforts, 1305 grantees are exploring and testing innovative approaches that will provide critical insight and lessons learned. The goal of the Emerging Practices in Diabetes series is to summarize and share information on these practices to guide the work of other states working in these same areas. This report describes the work of three states to increase access to and participation in diabetes self-management education (DSME) through targeted outreach, partnership, technical assistance, grant opportunities, and reimbursement initiatives. emerging_practices-increasing_dsme.pdf
