Diabetes Self-Management Education and Support (DSMES)

No cost to FHCP members

Our DSMES program is recognized by the American Diabetes Association (ADA) for quality comprehensive education. This program is taught by FHCP Registered nurses, Registered Dietitian Nutritionists and Certified Diabetes Care and Education Specialists (CDCES). Members with a diagnosis of diabetes may self-refer or be referred to the program by any of their health care providers. The program covers all pertinent topics to empower members to self-manage diabetes and actively participate in their plan of care with their providers. For more information about the program including how to utilize services, enroll or opt-out, call the FHCP Diabetes/Health Education Department at 386-676-7133 or 1-877-229-4518

Professional organizations recommend at least four critical times to engage in DSMES:

  • At initial diagnosis
  • Yearly, or when not meeting your treatment goals
  • When complicating factors develop
  • When transitions in life and care occur
