Diabetes educators are the frontline of care for individuals affected by diabetes. COVID-19, like other viruses, can cause serious complications for people with underlying conditions, especially in those with existing cardiovascular diseases or diabetes, and the elderly.


During the movement control period, people with diabetes may encounter challenges in their daily self-care, accessing regular medical supply and maintaining regular medical visits.


Hence, it’s important that these diabetes educators take the appropriate steps to work with clients with diabetes to follow proper infection control guideline and continue to support them with diabetes self-management education.


This talk will clarify on diabetes educator as a profession and their roles in the COVID-19 pandemic.
