Clinical Diabetes Management

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

About the Program:
Diabetes is a very common and serious disease. New diabetes therapies and technologies are
expanding dramatically and evidence-based guidelines are continually changing, making
management more challenging. Keeping current with the latest therapies for the management of
diabetes and related comorbidities is difficult and time consuming.
Primary care clinicians are increasingly responsible for diabetes management and education. This
requires extensive knowledge of the natural history of diabetes and recommended treatment
options, as well as the ability to teach patients how to successfully manage their disease. Given the
complex and diverse nature of diabetes, education on evidence-based practice guidelines and
protocols is vital to a physician’s ability to effectively treat patients.
This program uses lectures and interactive learning activities based on the latest research and
clinically proven therapies. With an emphasis on application, this comprehensive program for
medical professionals includes practice-based case studies and breakout sessions on specialized
topics. This program will give providers increased knowledge, skills and confidence, and provide
tools to manage this complex chronic disease.

Program Objectives:
Following this course, participants will be able to:
- Discuss the underlying defects and natural history of diabetes and associated complications
- Evaluate noninsulin diabetes therapies and identify principles for selecting, combining and advancing therapies, including medication affordability
- Initiate insulin therapy based on patient assessment and adjust insulin doses based on pattern management or using diabetes technologies
- Develop strategies to improve adherence to diabetes self-management activities such as eating for better health and glucose monitoring
- Outline a systematic approach for managing diabetes and hypertension and dyslipidemia
- Describe diabetes management of the elderly and those with microvascular complications
- Discuss evidence-based weight loss strategies for overweight patients
- Implement at least two practice changes into patient care
