Palo Pinto General Hospital offers outpatient diabetes self management education and is nationally accredited with the American Association of Diabetes Educators.

Diabetes Self-management education/training (DSME/T) is the ongoing process of facilitating the knowledge, skill, and ability necessary for diabetes self care.

This process incorporates the needs, goals, and life experiences for the person with diabetes and is guided by evidence-based standards. The overall objectives of DSME/T are to support informed decision-making, self care behaviors, problem-solving and active collaboration with the health care team, and improve clinical outcomes, health status, and quality of life.
