Basic Diabetes Education (Phase I of Rehabilitation)

  • Kinga Howorka


This chapter briefly outlines the material we feel should be included in the basic diabetes education program. If he is to act responsibly, the patient should have a well-grounded knowledge of his disease and its treatment. In order to increase the acceptability of FIT to the patients and help them “get on with it” as quickly as possible, however, our group tries to make it a policy to dispense with any unnecessary information, especially during this phase of the training program. The emphasis is on knowledge that will be the foundation for putting FIT into practice.
