|National Diabetes Prevention Program :: New York|
New York is working to prevent type 2 diabetes by creating prediabetes awareness and increasing referrals to evidence-based lifestyle programs among health care providers. The NY Diabetes Prevention and Control Program (DPCP) created two tools kits – one for providers and one for community partners such as community health workers, parish nurses, etc., in order to promote evidence-based lifestyle programs. The tool kits have a community guide, patient guide, physician algorithm and referral sheet, and fact sheets. To promote to providers, New York is using an academic detailing model at area health systems and offering an online course for CME credit. Additionally, the DPCP is building a "no wrong door" referral system by utilizing existing infrastructure such as the local 211, NY Connects, and the New York State Evidenced Based Programs Quality and Technical Assistance Center (QTAC).
