RESEARCH PROJECTS

 

Diabetes Trained Physicians “DTP”

 

DTP I – General Diabetes

 

DTP I Objectives: To understand clearly and become more aggressive in diagnosis, prevention and management of diabetes including patient education.

 

Begin by developing Diabetes Medical thought, leadership, and commitment to the patient education and improvement outcomes.

 

Be able to demonstrate benefits of the above in terms of proven improvement patient’s outcomes in real patient communities.

 

DTP II – Intensive Insulin Therapy

 

DTP II Objectives: Take DTP training to the next level i.e. practical teaching for GPs (aggressive diagnosis, prevention and management of diabetes) and others.

 

Reflect the objectives set during the first DTP meeting and to what extent these have been met by the GPs.

 

Learning through case-based study and discussion.

 

DTP III – Oral Therapy in Diabetes

 

DTP III Objectives: Taking DTP training to the next level i.e. practical teaching for GP’s (aggressive diagnosis, prevention and management of diabetes) and other.

 

DTP IV – Chronic Complications of Diabetes

 

DTP IV Objectives: Taking DTP training to the next level i.e. practical teaching for GP’s (aggressive diagnosis, prevention and management of diabetic complications).

 

Challenges:  How can we increase primary care physician and patient education impact therapeutic outcomes in the management of diabetes?

 

What could be the best way to implement this education and monitor results in terms of HbA1c control and other clinical outcomes?

 

Why “DTP” Program:  There is forty percent (40%) knowledge gap between what general practitioners think their patients know or understand about diabetes and what their patients actually know and have learned from them.

 

(Innovera Diabetes Bench marking study in nine (9) countries in 1995)

 

Without significant and continual diabetes education and monitoring neither primary care physician nor patients are aware of the seriousness of their conditions. Both claims that they are under control.

 

Most general practitioners are aware of the need to measure HbA1C, but do not ask for it.

 

(Innovera Diabetes Bench marking study in nine (9) countries in 1995)

Format and Structure:  Lectures, workshops, case presentations, live patient presentation, practical sessions, problem solving, live video of patients with complications, company demonstration
