Course Description :
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 are vital to a clinician’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.
