Program Description

In the US in 2012, 29.1 million people (9.1% of the population) had diabetes. Some projections estimate that diabetes will affect up to 50% of the US population by 2020, or as many as 1 in 3 Americans. Implementation of effective and aggressive evidence-based diabetes care can change this grim trajectory. Nurse practitioners (NPs) and physician assistants (PAs) play an increasingly pivotal role in managing diabetes patients and controlling morbidity and mortality. As frontline providers, NPs and PAs are in an ideal position to recognize and initiate corrective measures for inadequate treatments, help patients set and achieve therapeutic goals, and assess diabetes-related complications as they arise. NPs and PAs also play an active role in educating patients about their therapies, administrations, and dosages.

Using case vignettes and patient stories, this educational activity will update NPs and PAs with practical strategies to break down patient barriers to insulin initiation. The activity will also share new data to help clinicians identify where new and emerging agents fit in the current armamentarium.

In the world of medicine, art provides a way to express the intensity of human emotion that is associated with living with sickness and with healing. These emotions can have a profound effect on patients, as well as on their caregivers. During this CME activity, and in partnership with Art in CME, LLC, patients’ works of art and their accompanying stories will link the patient experience to the management of diabetes.
