Additionally, I will refer to community support groups. One of the local centres is Diabetes Center Miami (http://diabetescentermiami.com). The centre’s website provides educational materials on diabetes, including its symptoms, management, and outcomes. It also gives contact information for diabetic patients and their family members in case of additional questions.
Lifestyle modification is key to the prevention and management of diabetes. According to the research, healthy lifestyle changes can prevent around 30% of complications (Tung & Peek, 2015). Community members search for educational materials and recommendations to manage diabetes and improve the quality of life. They also need professional assistance to balance a healthy lifestyle with necessary medications and procedures.
In turn, I can monitor the effectiveness and prevalence of lifestyle modifications in diabetes management using the data on diabetes-related hospitalizations and medical appointments. I can find this information in the same annual reports. Reduced rates of hospital admissions can indicate better management of diabetes and higher rates of a healthy lifestyle among the patients. Additionally, I can ask for the same data from the healthcare department in the community and the state.
