NP Tools and Resources

AANP-developed Resources to Support NPs in Treating Your Patients


Patient Education Tools and Resources

My Diabetes Plan

Available in English and Spanish, this is a provider tool that may be used to engage patients in the shared decision-making process when developing or changing their diabetes management plan. The tool was developed with the busy provider in mind and to help the patient better understand their treatment plan as well as the benefits and consequences of their choices.

AANP developed and produced this resource tool through the support of an educational grant from Lilly. Updates made available through support of an educational grant from Sanofi US.

Diabetes Medication

Available in English and Spanish, this chart is an educational resource tool developed with the patient in mind that lists key components of oral and injectable antiglycemics on one side and insulins on the other side. Patients can use this simple and effective tool to help them understand basic information necessary to make informed decisions regarding therapeutic options.

Patient Engagement Resources

In an ongoing effort to provide AANP members with effective tools to improve clinical practice, AANP, in collaboration with educational partner Med-IQ, has developed a series of educational resources that can be used during discussions with patients who have type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM).

These resources were developed and produced through the support of an educational grant from NovoNordisk Inc.

Living With Type 2 Diabetes Flipchart

AANP’s most popular flipchart, created by expert NPs to support education of patients with Type 2 Diabetes, comes with a two-sided document of information to give to the patients to take home.

AANP developed and produced the educational tool through support from Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals, Inc, and Eli Lilly and Company.
