Chronic Disease Education: Exciting Opportunity For The Future Of Home Care Or The Impossible Dream? Make It The Key To Your Long-Term Survival!

are you readyLet’s say you have a chronic disease management program.  The question of the day is whether or not it consistently manages chronic disease? If you can’t say yes to that question, then you really should look at your chronic disease education.

Chronic Disease Education Is A Plan, Not An Event:

You probably haven’t looked at chronic disease education that way. If you see chronic disease management as a plan, then why wouldn’t the education surrounding it be the same?  It should be.  You need to think through and determine how your agency approaches chronic disease education.  Do you have a program you haven’t changed for the last decade? Is it something addressed on hire? Is it in the orientation process? Do all clinicians receive it? Who is responsible for implementing your chronic disease management plan? These are all questions to consider. Whether starting a program or looking to tweak your current one, know your baseline.

What Type Of Chronic Disease Education Do You Need?:

You need in-depth chronic disease education.  This is not a suggestion, it is reality. Chronic disease management is about the medical home. It is about functioning in a truly comprehensive way.  All disciplines are laser focused on shared goals and outcomes. Every person involved in that care plan knows what to implement when chronic disease is present. If you do not utilize a multi-disciplinary approach to chronic disease management, then your education is just an event.  Aides should be as laser focused as the nurse. And, if you don’t include rehab staff, then you miss a huge opportunity. Make your educational program not just about the disease, but also how it relates to to management in a care plan.  If you have many branches or a large staff, online education can be a great start to your chronic disease education program.  Also, remember to make the education an ongoing process.
