Session 1 of 3 educational sessions on the assessment and management of diabetes and mental illness
The Diabetes Nurse Interest Group (DNIG) and the Mental Health Nursing Interest Group (MHNIG) of the Registered Nurses’ Association of Ontario (RNAO) are pleased to invite you to three educational sessions on the assessment and management of diabetes and mental illness. Many persons are living with both illnesses, a dual combination that can significantly impact the quality of life. The sessions will be offered by webcast or videoconferencing through OTN.
This Pre-Conference Workshop will provide both knowledge and practical skills that will allow educators to effectively address emotional concerns and behavior change, with the goal of ultimately improving outcomes for patients.
This Conference will be of interest to Health Care Professionals (e.g. Nurses, Dietitians, Pharmacists, Social Workers, Chiropodists, and Physicians) who would like to increase their knowledge about diabetes and/or are preparing for their CDEs. Participants may want also want to register for the Pre-Conference Workshop on Thursday, April 10, 2014 from 1230 to 1700 hours.
We would like to congratulate our colleagues at the Seniors Health Knowledge Network Diabetes Community of Practice (SHKN Diabetes CoP) for receiving the 2012 CDA/DES Practical Diabetes Resource of the Year Award at the national CDA conference this past October. The group received the award for their DVD based resource "Diabetes 101: A Comprehensive Learning Tool for Health Care Professionals in Long Term Care Settings."
