Take the SME Challenge

Case Study

What if...

Samir has come into the office to get his annual flu shot. You take this opportunity to encourage him to consider taking care of his diabetes seriously, and discuss with him the importance of self-monitoring, adhering to physical activity and dietary regimens, and taking his medications regularly. He thinks he is doing fine as is.

What should your next step be?

Give him one small goal to start with
Send him to see a dietician to discuss this further with him
Ask him if you can readdress this at another visit
Wait for him to bring it up with you at another visit
