Diabetes and Language | What we say matters - 0.5 CEs
Title: Diabetes and Language | What we say matters
What we say matters. As educators, advocates, spouses, friends, and providers, our use of language can deeply affect the self-view of people living with diabetes everyday.
(Also included in our Test Taking Toolkit)
The language used in the health care setting is immensely important in determining the success of the interaction and long term relationships.
Thoughtful communication provides a sense of support and empathy and moves both provider and person with diabetes toward greater satisfaction and success.
Based on powerful research, there is growing movement within diabetes education and beyond, to rethink the words we use and the approaches we take when providing counsel to people with diabetes.
Let’s lift people up by choosing language that is non-judgmental and person centered.
Enjoy our Language and Diabetes Webinar to learn more and take your communication to the next level!
