No new hospitalization data are available; 2014 is the most recent year. As soon as 2015 data are available, a new data point will be added to the trend line for this indicator. As mentioned above, this indicator is impacted by numerous factors outside of the area of responsibility of DPCP and public health. However, DPCP continued to work on activities within its sphere of influence that support improved diabetes management:
- Provided diabetes self-management education to 102 individuals (89 in English, 13 in Spanish), with an average completion rate of 76.5%.
- Established a new brand for its evidence-based programs, entitled Paths to Health New Mexico: Tools for Healthier Living.
- Implemented a centralized referral and data system for its Paths to Health NM programs.
- Held two major stakeholder meetings to get input and commitment on the best way to collectively prevent and manage diabetes.
- 140 individuals participated in a meeting about the NDPP; the DPCP and its partners are using this input to create a diabetes prevention state plan that will guide diabetes prevention work for the next 12-18 months.
- 57 individuals participated in a meeting about diabetes self-management education support. This input is informing the Program’s FY18 work plan.
- Trained 235 health professionals on diabetes prevention and control at quarterly NM Diabetes Advisory Council meetings.
