Integrated Care for the Diabetic Patient: How to Diagnose and Manage the At-Risk Patient Webinar Part 2

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

It remains clear that although diabetes is a systemic disorder, the manifestations of diabetic complications will occur without optimal glycemic and blood pressure control. Optometrists can help continually reinforce that message by educating patients about the necessity for ongoing and yearly dilated eye exams, and discussing the potential treatments should vision loss become obvious.

The target audience for this CE Activity is Optometrists.
Learning Objectives

This educational activity consists of a supplement and twenty (20) study questions. To obtain credit, the participant should read the Learning Objectives contained at the beginning of this activity, read the material, answer all questions in the Post Test, and complete the Activity Evaluation Form. This educational activity should take a maximum of 2.0 hours to complete.
After successfully completing this activity, optometrists will have improved their ability to:
Determine who is a high-risk patient for the onset of diabetic eye disease
Discuss the importance of conducting yearly dilated exams on diabetic patients
Develop plans to initiate co-management of the diabetic patient with both ophthalmologists and primary care physicians/endocrinologists
