Diabetes Care - Resource

This template was developed to assist organizations in their effort to become an accredited Diabetes Self-Management Education (DSME) program through the American Association of Diabetes Educators (AADE). DSME programs may choose to apply for AADE accreditation or American Diabetes Association (ADA) recognition, both approved to make programs eligible for Medicare reimbursement. The rationale for developing this template was to guide these organizations through the documentation needed to complete the application. This template has been used successfully in South Carolina for over four years and has been well received by AADE.
