Abstract :

There is a mind shift that needs to occur in the clinical world of diabetes management to stay relative. The shift is to listen to the patient; what they were wanting out of their life with diabetes, and what/who can help motivate them; patients want to be more involved, motivated, and guided to find solutions to manage their diabetes. The management of type 1 diabetes goes beyond the basics and dives into the balance of the occupational, social, spiritual, intellectual, physical, emotional, and environmental (OSSIPEE) factors to live happy, healthful lives with diabetes. To stay relevant in your practice, you must come explore OSSIPEE. Recent Publications 1. Curry, A. (November 2017) Race and Type 1 Diabetes. Diabetes Forecast. 2. Fricchione, G.
