MCN Webinar - The Impact of the Workplace on Primary Care Management of the Diabetic Patient

The Impact of the Workplace on Primary Care Management of the Diabetic Patient

March 28, 2018 @ 1 PM (ET)

Presenters: Sherry Barron

Description: Management of diabetes can be affected by many factors including the type of job of the diabetic patient. More importantly, poor diabetes management can compromise a workers’ ability to perform their job duties. The standard of care to regulate blood glucose such as standardized medication, activity, and food regimens may not be possible for many workers, particularly those in low-wage jobs. There may be no place to store medication or food, breaks may be limited or not regularly be offered and following a food regimen while working may not be feasible. This webinar reviews how work can impact diabetes management and offers strategies and tools to assist diabetic patients in managing their disease at work. Results from a recent study with primary care providers will be shared to highlight new recommendations for clinical decision support.

MCN Webinar - The Impact of the Workplace on Primary Care Management of the Diabetic Patient

The Role of Structural Competency in the Treatment and Prevention of Diabetes in a Vulnerable Agricultural Worker Population

April 4, 2018 @ 1 PM (ET)

Presenters: Deliana Garcia, MA

Description: Over the last 30 years, considerable attention has been paid in the clinical setting to cultural competency- the ability to mitigate against the effects of the sociocultural differences between clinicians and patients and to take into account how culture affects the symptoms presented or the patients’ attitude about health care. More recently, scholars and clinicians have encouraged those in practice or health professions training to focus not only on the behaviors and beliefs of cultural groups but more importantly to consider the structural determinants, prejudices, injustices and blind spots, the “pathologies of social systems” that affect health outcomes and the stigma experienced by patients. The session will introduce participants to the broad framework of structural competency and the five core structural competencies. Particular attention will be paid to the impact of structural issues on the treatment and management of diabetes for vulnerable populations.

MCN Webinar - Improving patient adherence with cost of care conversations

Improving Patient Adherence with Cost of Care Conversations

April 25, 2018 @ 1 PM (ET)

Presenters: Deliana Garcia, MA, Douglas D. Bradham, DrPH, MA, MPH

Description: Over 20 million people this year will not stick to their care plan because of worry about the cost -- almost 6% of the entire US population. But avoiding or delaying care, especially for chronic conditions or in prenatal care, can have adverse effects on health status and health care use -- and long-term expense. When providers talk to their patients about the cost of their care, what is recalled by the patient? How can providers present the cost of care conversation in a way that is the most effective?

In this presentation, MCN will discuss a unique project examining the cost of care conversation’s structure, to see what content elements are actually delivered during the medical encounter versus what is recalled by the patients. The presentation will include a comparison of the effectiveness of the trained sub-groups (intervened) and the usual care (non-intervened) study groups. Long-term outcomes regarding the patient’s adherence to the care plan, and their reason for non-adherence, will also be discussed.
