The goal of The Road to Health Training Guide is to 1) help readers learn how to use the Road to Health Toolkit and 2) increase knowledge and skills regarding type 2 diabetes prevention among community health workers (CHWs) in Hispanic/Latino and African American/African communities, so they are able to clearly relay the following message: Type 2 diabetes does not have to be our destiny because it can be prevented or delayed in people at high risk for the disease.
The following are the learning objectives for these materials.
At the end of the training, the participant will have the knowledge, skills, and competency to—
- Define types, symptoms, and complications of diabetes.
- List at least three major findings of the Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) study.
- Explain how type 2 diabetes can be prevented or delayed.
- Identify at least five risk factors for type 2 diabetes.
- Explain the importance of making small lifestyle changes to prevent or delay the onset of type 2 diabetes.
- Define serving and portion size for common foods.
- Demonstrate how to use the Road to Health Toolkit.
- Conduct a role play activity by using the Road to Health Toolkit Flipchart.
- Identify serving size, total calories, and saturated fat on Nutrition Facts labels.
- Use the National Diabetes Education Program (NDEP) Food and Activity Tracker to record food and drink intake and physical activity.
- Use the NDEP Fat and Calorie Counter to demonstrate how to determine the grams of fat and calories eaten.
- Use the poster Step by Step—The Road to Health to introduce, summarize, and end the training workshop.
- Communicate the three key prevention messages to help prevent or delay the onset of type 2 diabetes—
- 5 percent to 7 percent weight loss, if overweight
- Making healthy food choices and following a low fat, low calorie meal plan
- Physical activity for 30 minutes five days a week.
- State the role of CHWs in helping people learn how to prevent or delay type 2 diabetes by:
- Explaining the roles CHWs have in the community.
- Learning tips from CHWs.
- Develop and strengthen a partnership with the NDEP.
The target audiences that may most benefit from these materials include people who develop or offer train-the-trainer workshops for CHWs/promotores de salud who work with Hispanic/Latino or African American/African Ancestry people. Other health care professionals, diabetes educators, health educators, nurses, dietitians, and community educators may also use this Road to Health Training Guide.
