Diabetes Management for Persons with Mental Illness and Developmental Disabilities
|Purchase This Training:|
The diagnosis of diabetes is serious, and of particular concern when an individual also has a mental illness or a developmental disability. People need to take an active role in the management of diabetes just as they do with a mental illness. In this presentation, Ms. Farley explains how diabetes is recognized and managed, and shares her experiences caring for people who have diabetes along with a developmental disability or a mental illness.
