Éducation thérapeutique du patient diabétique

Abstract : There is a proven relationship between oral health, periodontal disease and diabetes. Dental Patient Therapeutic Education (PTE) is part of tertiary prevention and should be implemented in the PTE services of diabetic patients. Dentist must acquire this educational skill and develop it also in the liberal exercise. The means of communication used in order to educate will enable dentists to generate a stimulus regarding the willing to change of the patient and will also enable patients to better understand their diseases. A diagnostic assessment makes it possible to evaluate the knowledge and the needs of the patient. After this diagnostic, individual and collective sessions are proposed. Objectives and skills are regularly reevaluated. The PTE file is a support for judging the evolution of the patient and it allows the transmission to different health professionals. At the end of the PTE, a follow-up is done to complete the learning. The notion of inter-disciplinary team is essential to enable the patient to evolve generally and can generate a motivation improvement for the health staff taking part in the PTE. PTE is not much present in the curriculum of students in dentistry. Regional Committee on Health Education (RCHE) should be a source of informations and training dentists must be aware of. Yet this committee is still unknown by dentists. An evolution is expected in this area with regards to the public health problem of diabetes.
