Understanding the impact of diabetes in the workplace has been a large focus in 2016 for AAOHN. The Year of Managing Diabetes in the Workplace project provided by AAOHN in conjunction with the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has given the OHN an opportunity to gain knowledge and skills to help support employees who have diabetes. This final session will be a review of the information presented at the National AAOHN Conference in Jacksonville, Florida in April. The focus will be on technology and travel including an update on the latest devices and apps that employees may find useful for diabetes self management. The OHN who attends this course will not only learn updated information about technology but there will also be a discussion about emergency situations associated with diabetes and travel health for employees with diabetes.
