National Diabetes Education Program
This excellent site for patients and providers is a partnership of the National Institutes of Health, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and more than 200 public and private organizations.
Sections of the site include:
- I Have Diabetes
- Am I at Risk?
- Health Care Professionals, Businesses & Schools
- Partners & Community Organizations
An important feature is the ability to create a customized search to find publications particular to an individual’s situation—age, diabetes status, ethnicity/race, and language. You can also search by topic.
The Health Care Professionals section of the website contains clinical practice tools and patient education materials to help you identify and counsel patients with prediabetes and work with patients with diabetes.

Making Systems Changes for Better Diabetes Care is a National Diabetes Education Program website that provides information, links, resources, and tools to help healthcare professionals assess needs for system changes, develop plans, implement tools for action, and evaluate the change process.
Tools include links to clinical practice recommendations, patient education materials, algorithms, and risk assessments.
One section of particular interest is Diabetes Self-Management Education, which provides a four-step patient empowerment model.
