Program Overview and Purpose

New and effective treatments are now available for patients who have developed diabetic eye disease, yet without awareness, education and a dilated eye exam, it could be too late for proper treatment. Evan (Jake) Waxman, MD, PhD, and Roger H. Phelps, OD, CDE, will present the most recent information on the state of diabetes and the eyes, to enhance the diabetes educator’s ability to educate and guide their patients in preventing diabetes-related blindness. This presentation emphasizes the need for good control and regular dilated eye exams for all patients with diabetes, which can prevent up to 90% of diabetes-related blindness. This course will also present a practical format to establish and maintain an important communication link between eye doctors and educators, dietitians, nurses, and physicians, as well as other team members who share in the care of diabetes patients.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this presentation, the participant will be able to:

• State the ABC-D’s of diabetes care as they relate to the prevention of blindness
• Recognize the general categories of eye problems in patients with diabetes
• Discuss the important aspects of the anatomy of the eye as it relates to diabetic eye disease
• Identify the stages in the pathophysiology of diabetic retinopathy for improved communication with eye doctors
• Develop a strategy in establishing innovative partnerships with eye doctors

Intended Audience

This is a knowledge-based activity designed for individual diabetes educators, including RNs, RDs, Pharmacists, Nurse Practitioners, Clinical Nurse Specialists, Physician Assistants, MDs, and other healthcare providers interested in staying up-to-date on current practices of care for their patients with diabetes and other related conditions.
