This interactive virtual training shows viewers how telehealth can be used to increase screening for diabetic retinopathy and improve access and remove barriers to participation in diabetes self-management education and support and the National Diabetes Prevention Program lifestyle change program.
All participants attended a general session for the first hour where they learned about key telehealth definitions, how it differs from telemedicine, and what type of federal and state policies are in place to facilitate or not facilitate telehealth.
For the second hour, participants dispersed into one of three sessions to learn more about implementing telehealth for a specific program or service: 1) diabetes self-management education and support, 2) National Diabetes Prevention Program lifestyle change program, and 3) retinopathy screening for people with diabetes.
