The Treatment of Type 2 Diabetes from a Multidisciplinary Approach

Moderated by Dr. Amir Ramezani


Janet Allen, MSN FNP-C, RN, PHN 

Alex L. Andrade Jr, PhD 

Elaine C. Souza, MPH RD CSOWM


Adults who receive a diagnosis of type 2 diabetes might respond in a range of different ways to the life changes required to actively manage the disease. This presentation will provide the

perspective of three treatment providers, a medical provider, a psychologist, and a dietician, and

how they help patients to practice, process, and implement the life changes required to manage

type 2 diabetes. The primary focus will be how a multidisciplinary approach, as well as a lack of

one, impacts patients’ ability to successfully manage their diabetes. This presentation will be a

collaborative discussion between the audience and the panel members with multiple

opportunities for participation and sharing of experiences.


As a result of the presentation participants will have a better understanding of the following:

1) diagnostic criteria of type 2 diabetes and medical/behavioral treatment interventions; 

2) treatment providers experience in how patients perceive a diagnosis of type 2 diabetes; 

3) how a multidisciplinary treatment approach can benefit patients and treatment providers; 

4) how treatment providers can develop collaborative treatment interactions and communications.
