DSMES-Guidance-Manual-FINA

The Guidance Manual for Building and Sustaining a Quality DSMES Program was developed by the Florida Diabetes Alliance, Inc. to provide you with practical guidance on developing DSMES services. Our goal is to assist you as you are developing the infrastructure of your DSMES Program, guide you in setting up high-quality services and provide expert advice in preparing for accreditation or recognition by one of the two agencies that the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) authorize to accredit DSMES –ADCES or ADA. Additional tips are included to assist you in keeping your DSMES Program audit-ready and attain long-term sustainability.
