A New View for Patients and Families offers patients and families information about living with diabetes and visual impairment. This course is designed to improve knowledge and related skills of both diabetes (DM) and visual impairment (VI). It provides an opportunity to update old and learn new facts about DM self-managing. Students identify facts necessary to successful DM self-managing in the event of visual impairment. It is fully accessible to students who are sighted and visually impaired. It tends to be patient centered, language simplified and less technical. Individuals not concerned with certification, but desiring basic information, benefit from this course.
