Healthy Interactions’ Conversation Map tools are the most deployed DSME/S curriculum in the world. The diabetes Map tools were developed in collaboration with the American Diabetes Association in the U.S.A. and the International Diabetes Federation outside of the USA. Over 80,000 diabetes educators have been trained to facilitate the Map sessions in over 120 countries. The effectiveness of the Map tools can vary from one cohort to the next due to cultural implications, although the program has been translated and made culturally relevant for each country in which it is used. Previous research assessing outcomes for specific cohorts of patients has been collected, but this is the first study to evaluate Map tools outcomes at the macro level.

Medicare requires that nine of 10 hours of DSME/S be administered via group sessions. The remaining one hour can be delivered individually, but it can also be delivered in a group setting if more appropriate. Healthy Interactions focuses mostly on group education sessions because one-on-one sessions have not proved as effective when it comes to patient program completion. Group sessions have been successful because the curriculum is totally centered on the participant and allows for individualization within a group environment. A group creates a support network, incentivizing patients to return for additional sessions.
