Diabetes Prevention Program 

ACPM has received a one year grant (potentially renewable) from the National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, Division of Diabetes Translation at CDC.

The CDC-led National Diabetes Prevention Program (National DPP)is a partnership of public/private organizations working collectively to establish, spread, and sustain an evidence-based lifestyle change program for people with prediabetes to prevent or delay onset of type 2 diabetes.The partners work to make it easier for people with prediabetes to participate in evidence-based, affordable, and high-quality lifestyle change programs to reduce their risk of type 2 diabetes and improve their overall health.

The goal of our work with CDC is to increase physicians’/health care professionals’ awareness of prediabetes as a serious health condition and to increase the number of physicians/health care professionals taking action to screen, test, and refer patients with prediabetes to CDC-recognized diabetes prevention programs. 

ACPM will work with the CDC and partner organizations to develop, coordinate, implement and manage educational trainings, as well as, gather stakeholder input from experts in the field. ACPM will lead the process to:

  • Create educational and experiential learning opportunities for physicians/health professionals through existing professional networks, meetings/conferences, web-based forums, online tools, and publications (journals, e-newsletters, etc.) 
  • Conduct Physician peer-to-peer mentoring and outreach
  • Develop physician “champions” to serve as spokespersons and advocates for increasing prediabetes screening, testing, and referral
  • Create demonstration projects to evaluate innovative approaches to engaging and activating practitioners in targeted medical specialty groups or specific geographic areas of need

 Target audience of developed resources will include nurses, nurse practitioners, physicians, and other clinicians.

Survey for Providers - Screening, Testing and Referral for Prediabetes

Take a brief survey to give us feedback on your current knowledge, experience, and challenges with screening, testing, or referring patients to a diabetes prevention program. The survey should take no more than 10 minutes. ACPM will use survey responses to help develop and implement learning opportunities among providers on testing and referring their patients to a CDC-recognized diabetes prevention program.

All those who complete the survey by Tuesday, November 22, 2016, will be entered into a drawing to win one of three $50.00 gift cards.
