Substance Use Disorders (SUD) and Type 2 Diabetes: Integration of Evidence-Based Diabetes Care to Promote Quality Health Outcomes

ISSUP, ICUDDR and IntNSA present their collaborative Webinar for World Diabetes Day 2023. This training focuses on the impact of metabolic risks associated with SUD and discusses evidence-based clinical approaches to reducing complications of diabetes in substance- using populations.

After this webinar, participants will be able to:

  1. Define diabetes (DM) and substance use disorders (SUD) and associated complications;
  2. Identify the associated risks of developing Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM) in substance-using populations;
  3. Illustrate the global epidemiological trends of SUD and DM; and
  4. Apply health promotion and disease prevention framework in culturally diverse, substance using populations.

Dr. Oluremi Adejumo is an Assistant Professor at the University of Maryland School of Nursing. She is a Fellow of the International Academy of Addictions Nursing and an International Council of Nurses (ICN) Certified Global Nurse Consultant. Her primary goal is to help strengthen the nursing capacity in the U.S. and abroad – prioritizing prevention, particularly in Nigeria and other African nations.

As a transformational leader, she has facilitated many community-based programs’ development, even in a complex adaptive system, to promote high performance. Her expertise lies in the translation of evidence-based research into practice. To share her knowledge, she mentors other nurses to be more effective and efficient in their practice delivery as they perform patient-centered care.

As a proactive leader, her aim to empower other nurses is evidenced in her engagements in nursing activities that foster professional growth. When Dr. Adejumo recognized the threat being posed by substance misuse to the citizens of Nigeria, within a short duration of her membership and engagements with the International Nurses Society on Addictions (IntNSA), she facilitated the establishment of the first chapter in Africa – IntNSA-Nigeria, as she works collaboratively with her nursing colleagues and healthcare professionals from other disciplines.
