The Diabetes Self-Management Program at Memorial Hermann The Woodlands Medical Center is an American Diabetes Association Recognized Program. The purpose of the training is to provide patients with the knowledge, skills, and motivation to effectively manage diabetes and to avoid or delay the complications of this disorder.
Refer a Patient Pre-Appointment Assessment Form
The program is a planned process that starts with an assessment of individual educational needs, followed by the implementation of the plan and documentation of the process, then concludes with evaluation of the outcomes. Patients are referred by their physicians who are sent a letter following each patient visit.
Our staff of nurse and clinical dietitian certified diabetes educators has the combination of commitment, knowledge and professional support to provide the training that is an integral component of diabetes management.
