A great deal of my practice is consulting. I provide information to or I consult with other health care professionals regarding their patients with diabetes. Is this considered diabetes education? These people are talking with me about their patients?
Yes, diabetes education may be provided to the care givers of those with diabetes. Care givers may also include other health care professionals. However, remember, only the time you spending consulting and teaching them about diabetes is considered diabetes education to be utilized in the initial 800 hours of diabetes education experience.
