What is the Johnson & Johnson Diabetes Institute, LLC?

The Johnson & Johnson Diabetes Institute, LLC is a global initiative that is the intellectual home for health care professionals who deal with diabetes and a trusted place of diabetes learning that becomes a catalyst for diabetes innovation, improved care and better outcomes worldwide. Through the Institute, the Johnson & Johnson Diabetes Solutions Companies provides face-to-face educational opportunities at one of our three facilities worldwide or at remote venues, in addition to digital learning events. . Thousands of diabetes specialists have received customized training, including the latest information about innovative practice models and ways to use existing diabetes tools and technologies to meet the needs of patients and providers in their region.

What need does the Institute fill that isn't being met today?

Diabetes is a global pandemic, affecting more than 366 million people worldwide. The human and economic burden of this disease is staggering. While the public health community is focusing on a range of efforts to improve diabetes outcomes, there is wide agreement that these efforts will only be successful if all members of the health team work together and follow a clear integrated strategy to manage and master diabetes. Our goal in establishing the Institute was to create a trusted place of diabetes learning that becomes a catalyst for diabetes innovation, improved care and better outcomes worldwide. The Institute provides health care professionals with access to the latest information and skills training to deliver quality care at the community level, and do so in a care model that facilitates early glucose control and appropriate follow-up.

What kind of training to health care professionals receive?

The curricula vary by location and are tailored to the needs of the health care professionals in each country or region. In general, courses emphasize ways to use existing diabetes tools and technologies in real time and cover innovative practice models to solve common patient problems.

Who develops the curricula?

In each country, the Johnson & Johnson Diabetes Solutions Companies work with the leading diabetes organizations and public health institutes to develop. Institute Faculty, which includes recognized diabetes experts in the respective region, also participate in the design of the curricula.

Who are the instructors?

In each Institute, faculty that include nationally recognized diabetes experts teach the curriculum.

How long is the training?

The curricula vary by region. However, in general, the training is conducted over a one-to- three-day period and involves both classroom instruction and training in using new and existing technologies.

What types of health care professionals can attend the Institute?

While the decision about which professionals to train differs from country to country, the Institute focuses on those professionals who are the most likely to work directly with the patient——with the goal of making the entire health care team more effective and efficient across a greater number of patients.

Does the Institute offer continuing education credit for the course?

Access to CME or CEUs may vary country to country. The education health care professionals receive at the Institute in the US. focuses primarily on the use of technology and Animas Corporation and Lifescan, Inc. product training. As a result, the Silicon Valley Institute curriculum is not eligible for credit under the current ACCME guidelines, which specifically exclude product training. Outside the US, the Institute provides continuing education credits, where allowed under local policies.

Wouldn't it be better to support the professional education programs conducted by academic centers and the diabetes organizations?

Our goal is to augment and complement existing efforts by reaching those health professionals on the front lines of diabetes care, such as physicians, diabetes educators, nurses, and physician assistants. Combined with the courses offered by academic centers and the leading diabetes organizations, the goal of the Institute is to provide training that increases the effectiveness of the entire health care team in meeting the needs of patients.

What role do your own products play in the training?

The diabetes products that members of the Johnson & Johnson Diabetes Solutions Companies, such as Animas Corporation and Lifescan, Inc., market—such as insulin pumps and blood glucose monitoring systems and software programs—are an integral part of effective diabetes therapy. Training on Animas insulin pumps and software and LifeScan blood glucose monitoring systems and diabetes management software is an important part of the Institute’s curricula in the United States. The goal is to provide the latest information and practical skills to enable health professionals to help their patients live healthier, longer lives.

How do you ensure the Institute doesn't become a marketing program to sell products of Johnson & Johnson Family of Companies?

The mission of the Johnson & Johnson Diabetes Institute is to transform diabetes care from management to mastery. The quality and value of our curricula stands on its own. We have enlisted leaders in diabetes care in each country to participate in developing and delivering training based on science, data, and evidence-based medicine. Our courses are intended to address the unmet needs for information and skills training of health professionals working at the community level, the our companies have a strong track record and commitment to educating and training health care professionals on the use of our products. Some examples include THE VISION CARE INSTITUTE®, LLC and The Endo-Surgery Institute or Ethicon Endo-Surgery, Inc.

What do you expect health care professionals to do once they complete the program?

Ultimately our goal is to help members of the Institute Community, including Institute Alumni, improve patient outcomes by translating the skills and information they acquire at the Institute into their practices and their communities. Our hope is that members of the Institute will think and act differently to manage their patients more effectively. This may include re-thinking how their practices are organized, using technology more effectively, and applying new insights into patient treatment.

Where are the facilities located?

There are currently institutes in Tokyo, Japan, Beijing, China, and the United States, located in Milpitas, California, a short drive from San Francisco. Although the physical venue of the Paris Institute is being closed, the Institute’s initiatives continue to thrive throughout Europe, the Middle East and Africa through remote and online programming.

Do you provide distance learning?

Our online community is one example of our effort to reach beyond the boundaries of our Institute facilities and we continue to think of ways to maximize the positive impact we strive to have. Through our website, health care professionals can gain access to a number of additional educational opportunities, such as webinars (live and archived), clinical answer videos, summaries of recent scientific diabetes-related publications and more. In addition, some of our sites coordinate “remote” programming, taking face-to-face classes to local communities.

How much does it cost to attend the program?

Depending on the location, there is no or minimal cost to the health care professional. The Johnson & Johnson Diabetes Institute underwrites program costs for health care professionals to attend the Institute, including travel, meals, and accommodations. If you work for the US Government, you must be able to provide proof of approval from your ethics officer in order to qualify to attend a face-to-face course.

I am a health care professional who treats diabetes. How can I attend?

Each country/region has a process for recruiting and selecting attendees. Please see below.

US, Canada, and Australian Health Care Professionals
If you live in the United States, Canada or Australia and have not already done so, please access/create your user profile by registering on this site, jjdi.com. All fields within this profile are REQUIRED for all healthcare professionals practicing in these countries. Incomplete information in this section may prevent your being selected to attend a course. Kindly ensure that you have checked the box indicating that you are interested in a class, otherwise our system may not identify you as an interested individual and it will not reach out to you with an invitation to a class.

In the US, the Johnson & Johnson Diabetes Institute, LLC provides health care professionals with education and training on the safe and effective use of LifeScan's blood glucose monitoring products and software and Animas insulin pumps. The courses emphasize ways to use diabetes tools and technologies in real time and innovative practice models to help solve patient problems. As a medical device training program, the Johnson & Johnson Diabetes Institute complies with the medical device industry's ethical standards, which are set forth in the AdvaMed Code of Ethics on Interactions with Health Care Professionals. The AdvaMed Code permits companies to provide travel and lodging for health care professionals attending training and education programs on their medical devices. In other countries, programs are designed to meet both local requirements and the Johnson and Johnson healthcare compliance requirements.

Health Care Professionals from countries other than the US, Canada, and Australia
If you live outside the United States, Canada or Australia, and have not already done so, please register with us at jjdi.com. We are currently in the process of renovating and expanding our global online presence. As our capacities in countries outside the United States grow, your name, country of origin and email information will be retained and may be transferred to local teams organizing any local Institute programs. As local country or regional Institute websites come online, you may be redirected to their webpages for additional information or registration. We thank you for your patience as we expand our offerings.

I live in the United States and provide diabetes education but am not a licensed medical professional, can I still attend a class in the US?

Due to the large number of respondents to our course we have developed guidelines that are closely followed. Each attendee must currently be a licensed health care professional. In addition, you must currently have a significant number of patients with diabetes that you are managing.

I live outside the United States, is it possible for me to attend a class in the United States?

The curriculum of classes provided in the United States is specific to the specific health care situation in the United States. Therefore many components of the US-based curriculum would not be relevant to practitioners from other countries. Given very high demand for our training inside the US, we are not able to accommodate attendees from other countries.
