The 5 As were introduced in a previous presentation on chronic condition management.  We will use the 5 As as we work with patients with diabetes.

 

Assess: What does the patient know about diabetes.  Are they ready to learn? What are their values and culture?

Advise: Prioritize an individual plan for your patient in partnership with them.

Agree: Start with goals patient has identified and assist them in creating ways to meet their goals.

Assist: Develop a long-term plan for the patients which is agreed upon by both patient and provider. Assist patient in identifying barriers to success.

Arrange: Continue to follow-up and assist patient
