The Healthy Living Workshop for Diabetes (HLW-D) is Vermont's name for the Stanford Diabetes Self-Management Program. The workshop helps Vermonters with diabetes improve self-confidence in personally managing diabetes by using peer support and short-term action plans to change behavior. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) considers the HLW-D to be an evidence-based program for improving diabetes self-management, including blood glucose control. Other Healthier Living Workshop programs exist for chronic disease and for pain.
Dashboard data for this measure is not available between 2013 and 2014; however, since 2014 the Vermont Blueprint for Health has partnered with community organizations to provide program administration and address barriers to data reporting. The Health Department began receiving data again in Q2 of 2015.
