Integrated Care for the Diabetic Patient How to Diagnose and Manage the At Risk Patient Part 2 Supplement

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

This continuing education (CE) activity captures content from a roundtable discussion held in September 2016.

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 examinations, and discussing the potential treatments should vision loss become obvious.
Learning Objectives

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 comanagement of the diabetic patient with both ophthalmologists and primary care physicians/endocrinologists
Implement strategies to educate patients on the ocular manifestations of diabetes.
