Life is full of challenges and diabetes adds a heavy burden.

Our medical system is great for teaching the medical side of diabetes, but offers little support for the day to day struggles.

But there can be peace in the storm if you are prepared.
Patricia Daiker, RN-BC is a certified Nurse Coach specializing in diabetes. Her professional training and first hand experience is the background from which she has created this curriculum.  Being a seasoned ICU and ER nurse wasn’t enough, but she has found the path and the skills that will help you live a better diabetes life.  
This course takes you on a journey from chaos and unpredictable weather, to a place where you have new skills to face any season.
Online courses are the perfect way to unpack all the emotions, frustration and confusion you may be experiencing.  There is no need to break down publically or take time off of work.  Get clarity, insight and a new understanding at home, one your phone, in private! Research has proven that coping well with the challenges of diabetes is the #1 thing you can do for your long term health!

“What can I expect from the courses?”

You will be guided through Patricia’s 5 Key Coaching Strategies which are arranged in 5 Chapters of content.

Each Chapter has 5 video lessons where Patricia lets you in on the strategies that can really help you change  your diabetes game plan.  Content will include research findings, clinical practice insights, coaching modalities, references and personal stories you can relate to.

As you watch each video, you follow along in the companion Home Coaching Journal where you can take notes, answer pop quizzes and dig deep into your Home Coaching Exercises.

Some lessons have quizzes, surveys or scoring tools to identify areas of strength and opportunity!

You will also do a beginning and end of course assessment so you can really measure your transformation!

“Tell me more about each Chapter.”

Each chapters guides you on a journey through very specific content that will help you gain new skills, perspective and tools to deal with all that diabetes will throw at you.
