3 How to use the Referral Toolkit This toolkit is designed to help CDSME coordinators and leaders communicate to health care providers how the referral process works, and why providers and patients would benefit from participating in the referral process. This toolkit is not designed to simply be handed to a provider or to be read cover to cover during a presentation. However, providers are welcome to keep a copy so they can use the tools provided while planning and implementing the referral process. The toolkit is designed to present information in various formats to meet the needs of different learning styles. Steps for recruiting providers 1. Read the toolkit and understand the referral process. If you don t understand, talk to your local or state CDSME coordinator. 2. Work with your local or state coordinator to identify opportunities to present the referral process to providers and existing partnerships in your area. Local coordinators will track presentations to avoid duplicate presentations. 3. Develop an action plan for approaching providers in your area. 4. If possible, include your local coordinator (or another partner if you are the local coordinator) in your presentation or meeting plans. 5. Choose the best tools from the toolkit to meet the needs of your presentation. 6. Have the meeting / give the presentation. 7. Follow-up within a week to see who you need to talk to next to implement the referral process. It is very likely that the office manager will be more involved with the referral process than the health care provider. This may require a second meeting with the office staff. 3

7 Tools for Better Health Self-Management Programs I was referred by my provider. Provider Feedback Form My Name Today s Date Dear Health Care Provider, I want to let you know that I have been attending the Chronic Disease Self-Management Program class to help me better manage my own health. Today I am in my final class of the 6 weekly sessions and I am sending you my thoughts about my chronic conditions, taking care of myself, my goals and my action step. What I have learned about my health is: I didn t know that my chronic condition was affected by: The things I do now that have helped me the most to manage my chronic conditions are: My Action Plan for the next six months is: Long term goal: Specific action step: How much/often? When? Confidence Level (0-10): We will forward this letter to the provider who recommended this program to you so you may continue your health action planning at your next appointment. 7

Comprehensive: A team of care providers is wholly accountable for a patient s physical and mental health care needs, including prevention and wellness, acute care and chronic care. Coordinated: Care is organized across all elements of the broader health care system, including specialty care, hospitals, home health care, community services and supports. Accessible: Patients are able to access services with shorter waiting times, "after hours" care, 24/7 electronic or telephone access, and strong communication through health IT innovations.

10 Quick CDSME Facts Workshops NEVER give medical advice. A large body of scientific evidence shows compared to non-participants workshop participants showed significant improvements in the following areas: Exercise Cognitive symptom management Communication with physicians Self-reported general health Health distress Fatigue Disability Social activity limitations Reduced days in the hospital and fewer outpatient visits Workshops are 6 weeks long with an informational meeting a week prior to the first workshop. Each session lasts 2.5 hours. Family and caregivers of people with chronic conditions are encouraged to attend workshops. Workshops are typically free, although some organizations may charge a small fee. KDHE can help you train workshop leaders in your organization. There are currently four workshop types available in Kansas: 1. Chronic Disease Self-Management Program (CDSMP) 2. Tomando Control de su Salud (Spanish CDSMP) 3. Diabetes Self-Management Program (DSMP) 4. Programa de Manejo Personal de la Diabetes (Spanish DSMP) Patients are 18 times more likely to attend a self-management workshop if their provider recommends it. (CDC Approach to Provider Outreach) 10

11 More Facts There is strong evidence across studies that CDSMP has a beneficial effect on physical and emotional outcomes, and health-related quality of life. This statement is based on high-quality information, standardized measures and is made with a high degree of confidence. The program consistently results in greater energy/reduced fatigue, more exercise, fewer social role limitations, better psychological well-being, enhanced partnerships with physicians, improved health status, and greater self efficacy. It is generally (although not always) associated with reductions in pain symptoms. 1 Be part of evidence-based workshops offered worldwide The Chronic Disease Self-Management Education (CDSME) series are evidence-based workshops developed in the early 1990s by the Stanford Center for Research in Patient Education. Considered the gold-standard in self-management education, these workshops are now used internationally in 15 countries and more than 39 U.S. states. CDSME has been proven to significantly help people with chronic diseases. In conjunction with your treatment plan, these programs teach participants how to exercise and eat properly, use medications appropriately, problem-solve every day situations, and communicate more effectively with family members and health care providers all positive life skills to enhance well-being. These interventions help participants reduce pain, depression, fatigue and frustration; improve mobility and exercise; increase energy; and boost confidence in their ability to manage their condition.

13 Kansas Success Stories Much Needed Improvement It [CDSME] has taught me a lot about my Asthma and how to live a better life. [A leader and I] discussed my weight problem, since starting this course I have started walking. When I began I weighed 224 lbs. As of today I weigh 206 lbs. I m breathing better, eating and sleeping better; just all over I feel a much needed improvement. CDSME Gets an A+ Just wanted to inform you of an interesting class I have been attending. It is on health, nutrition and exercise. It has been very helpful and the instructors have been fun and very interesting. We learned how different emotions can affect our eating, sleeping and pain, and what we could do to help them by proper exercise, eating and dealing with our emotions. I d give this class an A+. Diabetes Back in Control A CDSMP leader at a workshop hosted by the Kansas Statewide Farmworker Health Program described a client who had been diagnosed with diabetes: She had seen a physician and had prescriptions to control her diabetes, but she had not seen the doctor or taken medicine for a few months because of concerns over money. She was working hard to watch what she ate and also tried to walk each day. She felt pretty good and had decided she did not need to see the doctor or continue her medication. However, inspired by a CDSME leader who stressed the importance of regular doctor visits, she decided to make an appointment at a local clinic with the help of her Farmworker Health Case Manager. At that first appointment she was surprised to learn that her blood sugar was near 500! Since her body had become accustomed to that level, she was feeling reasonably good despite this dangerous level. The CDSME course reinforced to this client and others the importance of regular primary care, of taking prescribed medications and monitoring health status very closely. This client, through the help of the Farmworker program, found a way to access more affordable medications to help her with her blood sugar level and her cholesterol. Walking Again Denise Dias, a program leader in Sedgwick County said, We had a gentleman who was in a wheelchair. He told us that he could walk, but had almost given up walking and chose to use a wheelchair almost all of the time. When it came time for making an action plan, he decided the first week to get up out of this wheelchair and walk across his small apartment to the kitchen at least three times. Week one was a partial success. In the weeks following he continued to add a small amount to the distance he would walk each week. By week six, he reported that he could walk across his apartment, down the hallway and outside on the balcony to enjoy the fresh air. He had done that 5 of the 7 days and was completely successful. It is amazing how this program can encourage someone who had self-doubt to make some small changes to improve his quality of life. 13

14 Frequently Asked Questions How do self-management programs work? CDSME workshops are free or low-cost programs that help individuals with chronic conditions learn how to manage and improve their own health, while reducing health care costs. The programs focus on problems that are common to individuals dealing with chronic conditions such as pain management, nutrition, exercise, medication use, depression and communicating with providers. Workshops are facilitated by two trained leaders, one or both of whom have a chronic condition themselves. These trained leaders guide workshop participants through an evidence-based script once a week for six weeks. Through the curriculum, participants focus on building the skills they need to manage their conditions by sharing experiences and providing mutual support. The following Stanford programs are offered in Kansas: Chronic Disease Self-Management Program (CDSMP) Diabetes Self-Management Program (DSMP) Tomando Control de su Salud (culturally adapted Spanish CDSMP) Programa de Manejo Personal de la Diabetes (culturally adapted Spanish DSMP) Who should attend a self-management workshop? People with chronic long term conditions including but not limited to: Alzheimer s or dementia Asthma Arthritis Diabetes Heart Disease Mental Health Conditions Obesity and overweight Parkinson s, Epilepsy Stroke ANY ongoing health concern Friends, relatives and caregivers of someone living with a chronic condition are encouraged to attend as well. Adults of any age can benefit from the skills taught in this workshop. Is reimbursement available if I refer my patients to a workshop? It is possible to receive reimbursement for referring to the Self-Management Programs. The first reimbursement possibility is through care-coordination models such as the Patient Centered Medical Home or Health Home models. Your role in the model will determine your level of reimbursement. More information about PCMHs in Kansas can be found at For information about Health Homes visit KanCare_Health_Homes_Program_Manual_SMI.pdf. The other option for reimbursement is to bill insurance companies directly for education services that the practice provides. The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) is currently set up to reimburse providers of diabetes education. Visit for more information about billing CMS. 14

15 Private Insurance companies are open to negotiating with their contracted providers regarding reimbursement for education for both people with diabetes and those with other chronic diseases. We encourage providers to initiate discussions with their insurance networks. Why should I refer my patient to chronic disease self-management classes? These workshops are evidence-based programs developed by Stanford University. Patients learn strategies to self-manage such as setting small, action-specific steps to reach a goal. Workshop participants are more engaged in their health care and patient feedback gives providers documentation of patient s self-management goals. What will KDHE do when we receive your patient referral? KDHE will contact you to acknowledge receipt of the referral. KDHE will contact your patient within 5 business days to discuss attending a workshop. KDHE will update you on the status of all your referrals including attempts to reach, contacts, workshop registration information and any barriers encountered. KDHE will contact each patient a minimum of three times. Further contacts will be determined after consulting with the provider. What will KDHE say to my patient? KDHE staff will introduce ourselves and say we received the referral from their health care provider to the CDSME workshops. KDHE will assume that if the patient s signature is present on the form, you have briefly introduced the class to your patient and they will be expecting a call from us. If a patient s signature is not present on the referral form, KDHE will assume you have mentioned the referral to the patient and have noted the referral in your charting. KDHE will discuss the times, locations and dates of the closest classes available, and the class content, stressing that the class is not a medical intervention, but a self-management program. KDHE will mention the positive responses received from people just like them who have attended classes. KDHE will inform the patient they have been referred to class because the health care provider thinks the class is important for them and will be beneficial. Does the program replace existing programs or treatments? No. These workshops help participants work with providers to get the care that best meets their needs. Self-management skills enhance regular medical treatment. These skills are especially helpful for people with more than one chronic condition who are likely dealing with several doctors, nurses, and other professionals at the same time. This program never offers medical advice. Participants are encouraged to discuss any specific medical issues or medication questions with their health care provider. What are the benefits of the program? Stanford University s self-management education series is one of the most studied programs in existence. A meta-analysis of several studies conducted by CDC is available at 15

16 Compared to non-participants CDSME workshop participants showed significant improvements in: Exercise Cognitive symptom management Communication with physicians Self-reported general health Health distress Fatigue Disability Social/role activities limitations Reduced days in the hospital and fewer outpatient visits. How are the self-management workshops different from other patient education classes? Disease-specific education classes are designed to assist newly diagnosed participants in learning the information and skills necessary to care for their specific medical condition. These classes are led by nurses, health educators or doctors. Social and psychological adjustment to living with the condition is introduced, but is covered in a limited way. Chronic Disease Self-Management Education programs were designed to fill the gap between receiving doctor s orders and implementing the necessary changes in their daily lives required to follow doctor s orders. The programs develop the skills needed for patients to deal with the selfmanagement of their disease(s) and with the life changes and emotions that are part of living with a chronic illness. The workshops help patients manage common problems such as fatigue, communicating with friends, family and providers, dealing with anger and depression, and designing and maintaining an appropriate exercise program. In addition patients learn decision-making and problem-solving skills that help them manage their diseases as well as manage the rest of their lives. Chronic diseases account for 75% of all the money the U.S. spends on health care. There is a potential savings of $6.6 billion just by reaching 10% of Americans with one or more chronic conditions. (National Council on Aging, 2014) 16
