A commitment to supporting self-management of patients with diabetes


Join Dr. Victor Montori in conversation with Dr. Steven Smith, ground-breaking endocrinologist and emeritus professor at Mayo Clinic. His professional interests include the psychology of diabetes, measurements of satisfaction and health status, systems of care delivery for people with diabetes to include the relationship between specialists and generalists, and information management and the development and use of the Diabetes Electronic Management System. In this KER Cast, Dr. Smith shares his philosophy of patient care for chronic disease management as analogous to riding a bicycle, the two-way street of mentor-mentee relationships, and why he regards patients and their families as his most important collaborators in clinical and research endeavors.
