Effective dates for CE credit: 3/30/2022 – 3/30/2024
This 90-minute webinar will discuss common behavioral health challenges faced by people living with diabetes, including burnout; frustration among people with diabetes (PWD) in managing their diabetes; PWD dealing with stress outside of their diabetes and how that impacts them; reviewing what depression "looks" like – screening, signs and symptoms. It will also review the issue of "non-compliance" and how a clinician would address that; looking at what might be causing that, underlying issues, and how to address and overcome barriers. You'll gain the tools and resources needed to manage these concerns in-practice more effectively.
Learners will be able to discuss psychosocial aspects of living with diabetes at each clinical encounter and be able to identify when a referral to a behavioral health specialist is appropriate.
At the end of this presentation, participants will be able to:
-- Define current state of comorbid diabetes and mental illness
-- Describe common symptoms/causes of diabetes distress vs depression
-- State empirically validated measures to assess psychosocial outcomes
-- Describe how addressing psychosocial barriers can improve clinical outcomes
-- Teach effective techniques in address behavioral health concerns
-- State appropriate times to refer to behavioral health provider
-- Identify key organizations available as resources for mental health issues
