The National Diabetes Education Program (NDEP) seeks to identify tools and programs aimed at helping adults age 65 and older learn how to manage diabetes or prevent type 2 diabetes. The NDEP will consider resources created in a variety of formats, including websites, printed or electronic publications (e.g., brochures and tip sheets), tracking tools, videos, podcasts, training programs, and mobile applications. Resources for health care professionals such as peer-reviewed articles and consensus reports will also be considered.

Resources included should:

  • Be targeted to
    • Older adults with diabetes
    • Older adults who are at risk for type 2 diabetes
    • Caregivers of older adults with diabetes or at risk for type 2 diabetes
    • Health care professionals who serve older adults
  • Promote action steps appropriate for older adults
  • Focus on diabetes management or prevention of type 2 diabetes in older adults
  • Be accessible to the public with a reasonable registration process and cost
  • Have limited or no advertising.

Resources for older adults between the ages of 55 and 65 years of age may also be considered if the information is appropriate and fills a gap.
