Patient Self-Management: Diabetes
Patient Self-Management for Diabetes
Patient Self-Management Program for Diabetes was the APhA Foundation's first demonstration project for diabetes, designed to establish a new health care delivery program at five pilot sites over the span of a year. Following of the success of the Asheville Project and other collaborative care programs involving pharmacists, the APhA Foundation rose to the challenge of developing a model that could be replicated and scaled up in diverse community and payer settings. With the support of a grant by Aventis Pharmaceuticals, PSMP for Diabetes was implemented with new components that focused on aligned incentives, collaborative care and a Patient Self-Management Program for Diabetes credentialing process.
