Hi fellow TuD’ers. I have an opportunity to do some teaching for primary care physicians and endocrinologists in a community hospital near where I live. The teaching will focus on diabetes self management, but more importantly, what it’s like to live with diabetes and all of its ups and downs. I’d like them to understand diabetes from our perspective. And I’d like to represent our collective experiences if I can.
They want to know more about what they can do to be helpful. I think part of where to start is teaching them what it’s like to be in our shoes. Here’s an opportunity for you/us to provide some candid and constructive feedback. Would LOVE your input.
So my question is: what’s one thing you’d really like your doc or team to know about living with diabetes and what facilitates/creates barriers to “better management” on a day to day basis?
