Resource Summary: The HRSA Diabetes Quality Improvement Initiative is an agency-wide effort to improve diabetes outcomes and lower health care costs. MCN is working in support of the Improvement Initiative by assisting you to access resources and develop performance improvement skills that will enable you to address diabetes care in your mobile and agricultural worker populations. Diabetes care is a complex mix that includes medication, as well as education, self-care behaviors and continuity of care. Adding the factors of mobility, immigration status and culture takes the challenge to another level.
