Resumo: The purpose of this project was to standardize the referral and documentation process for diabetes education in patients with type 2 diabetes. The goal was to refer all eligible patients with type 2 diabetes into diabetes education. A standardized template within the clinical note was created to capture if the patients had ever received diabetes education. Use of this template by the clinician improved documentation about diabetes education and increased referrals into diabetes education programs. The findings of this project can be applied to other primary care clinics to help increase the historically low referrals rates into diabetes education.
