Fresh Views

#ADCES22 Wrap up!

Deb and Tami are all smiles after our presentation at #ADCES22

August 12-15 brought us a fresh point of view in Baltimore, MD at #ADCES22!  What an incredible conference, and so good to be back with friends and colleagues we haven’t seen in- person in 3 years.

We were honored to present to a full room late on a Friday afternoon! Our presentation highlighted 7 tactics for your toolbox, so to speak, to transform primary care visits.Since the majority of type 2 diabetes is managed in primary care, it seems the best place to start to change the way we engage with clients/patients is in the primary care setting. In case you missed the 7 tactics, and are wondering, here you go…

7 practical tactics for your primary care toolbox:

Tactic 1: Open the visit with a question focused on what’s going well or how you can provide support

Tactic 2: Elicit exceptions by asking “exception questions”

Tactic 3: Use person-first, strengths-based language

Tactic 4: Practice problem-free talk

Tactic 5: Ask eliciting questions

Tactic 6: Ask future-visioning questions

Tactic 7: Use scaling questions to scale progress

As we mentioned during our presentation, these tactics can largely be applied in other practice settings as well.

Stop back by in 2 weeks when we’ll share perspectives on embracing a “growth mindset” – a particularly impactful concept we learned about at the conference and one where, we believe, the tenets of a solution focused practice align.
