NOTIS and Seattle Children’s Hospital present Overview of Pediatric Diabetes

This 4-hour workshop for medical interpreters focuses on pediatric diabetes. Participants will learn the pathophysiology of diabetes and understand differences in diagnosis and treatment of type 1 vs type 2 in the pediatric population along with key words and concepts associated with these conditions and used during patient teaching sessions. Strategies to navigate safety concerns will be addressed. Nutrition goals and associated eating plans will be taught by a clinical dietitian. The clinical social worker will explore the psychosocial aspects of living with diabetes and strategies to support families through the lifestyle changes required for successful management of diabetes.
