The Chronic Care Model (CCM) can be used for diabetes self-management.  In the CCM, the patient and the provider work together as a team to control the diabetes.  They work in partnership as goals are set and treatment plans are decided on.  Team based care has been shown to improve outcomes.  In the self-managing chronic conditions module, the Chronic Care Model was introduced.  We are going to use the information presented from the presentation on the CCM to assist the patient with diabetes.
