#7422 Exercise Prescription for the Diabetic and Pre-diabetic Population

 

Therapists are often involved in symptomatic care of diabetes related complications. This happens mostly when a patient is diagnosed with diabetes for several years. This course will be presented with a perspective of involving therapists in not only curative phase but also for prevention of diabetes.

 

This course helps PT and OT identify diabetes in an individual long before they are formally diagnosed. We, as allied health professionals, should be involved in complete care of the patient from lifestyle modifications onwards to their long term physical and mental well being. This course will highlight the role of OTs in cognitive aspects and role of PTs for customized exercise prescriptions for individual patient needs.

 

We are far from one size fits all regimen of diet and exercise as far as management of diabetes is concerned. It takes a village to manage a patient with diabetes. I am hoping we take this awareness and share it with our medical colleagues, and seek involvement not just in symptomatic therapy but also in prevention of disease processes.

 

The attendees will learn latest evidence based research, *special section on Covid-19 effect on diabetes, how to work together as a PT/OT team as well as individual roles that are life changing for the patient. (Intermediate Level Course)
