Practical Solutions to Prevent and Prepare for Severe Hypoglycemia

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

Target Audience

This activity is intended for the multispecialty clinical team across physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, pharmacists, and other healthcare providers who manage patients with diabetes and play a role in helping patients prevent and/or prepare for a severe hypoglycemic event.

Program Overview

Episodes of hypoglycemia, including those that are severe, still occur despite new pharmacotherapies and the increased use of continuous glucose monitoring. Do you know which of your patients are at risk? Are they prepared with an active glucagon prescription? This activity helps you identify at risk patients and ensure they are prepared with access to glucagon. Included with the education are tools to educate patients and establish processes to improve hypoglycemia recognition and success with glucagon administration.

Learning Objectives

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

Identify patient-level predictors of severe hypoglycemia and related morbidity
Discuss the barriers to recognizing and treating severe hypoglycemia
Utilize strategies to increase and optimize the prevention and preparedness for severe hypoglycemia
Implement patient education approaches to improve success rates for glucagon administration for severe hypoglycemic events
