Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

Target Audience

This activity is designed to meet the educational needs of physicians, neurologists, geriatricians, psychiatrists, nurse practitioners, physician assistants and nurses.

Program Overview

Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM) is a chronic medical condition which poses serious health risks to older patients in long-term care facilities. In this GapEd Webcast, expert faculty will illustrate through patient cases the importance of individualized A1C goals and strategies on how to optimize glycemic control while simplifying regimens, minimizing hypoglycemia risk, and improving interdisciplinary communication. Through this gap-based activity, learners will be able to skip content they know well and view content that is consider essential by the faculty or they have a demonstrated gap in knowledge.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better able to:

Individualize A1C goals based on patient- and disease-specific factors
Compare and contrast fixed-ratio combinations of GLP-1 receptor agonists (RA) plus basal insulin with other insulin regimens
Devise glucose-lowering regimens that optimize quality of life and glucose control and minimize hypoglycemia
Implement strategies to improve interdisciplinary communication and facility care processes to optimize diabetes outcomes
