2.00 / AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM 2.00 / CE for Nurses
This activity is jointly provided by Global Education Group and Physicians' Education Resource®, LLC (PER®).
This activity is supported independent educational grants from Novo Nordisk, Inc and Sanofi US.
During this Medical Crossfire, expert faculty will engage in a multidisciplinary roundtable discussion that includes an endocrinologist, a certified diabetes educator, an endocrinology NP and a patient to discuss how to best optimize and individualize insulin therapy. In patients with insulin-resistant diabetes who have requirements of more than 200 units/day or 100 units/injection, novel concentrated insulins provide the same or better glucose control compared to older insulins, with fewer daily injections and reduced injection volume. However, safe use requires an experienced physician, a motivated and cooperative patient, and a dynamic diabetes management team. This program will provide practical strategies that can be implemented to improve quality of care with a focus on how an interdisciplinary team can help support the patient.
This educational series is designed for endocrinologists, certified diabetes educators, nurse practitioners, physician assistants and other health care professionals with an interest in insulin therapy.
After completing this activity, clinicians should be better able to:
IDENTIFY patients with T2DM who may benefit from the addition of insulin to their management strategy
LIST patient/practitioner barriers toward insulin that impact patient adherence
ARTICULATE the role of diabetes team members in implementing DMSE/S algorithm of care
EVALUATE the pharmacologic features of concentrated insulin formulations
PROPOSE an individualized treatment strategy utilizing a collaborative team-based approach to patient care that safely appropriately and effectively transition patients to concentrated insulin
