The Caring Connection presents
The Aide’s Role in Caring for
Patients with Diabetes
Thursday, April 14, 2016
2:00 to 3:00 p.m. CST
CD recording also available.
Description: People with diabetes are more susceptible to many other illnesses and, once they acquire these illnesses, often have worse outcomes than people without diabetes. The cost of diabetes in the United States totals in excess of $130 billion. This teleconference will focus on assisting your in-home aides in understanding diabetes, its causes and treatment, high and low blood sugar symptoms and the impact of the disease on individuals under their care. The in-home aide will be able to describe the role they play in helping to notice and manage symptoms associated with diabetes.
Presenter: Kathie Smith, RN. In addition to several management level positions in home care, Ms. Smith has experience as a Home Health Nurse Aide Supervisor. Prior to working for AHHC, she was the Manager of Home Care Initiatives for the NC Division of Medical Assistance where she assisted in overseeing home care policy. Ms. Smith has extensive experience in Medicare and Medicaid home health compliance and regulatory requirements and is a state and national speaker. Mrs. Smith is certified in integrated chronic disease management, is a master trainer in Coaching Supervision and served on the North Carolina management team for the Personal and Home Care Aide State Training (PHCAST) grant which has developed Home Care Specialty training for NC aides.
