What You Will Learn: We focus on four distinct areas of the most cutting-edge diabetes management strategies: • Patient-provider relationships with a focus on communication methods to improve adherence and persistence. • Oral agents for the treatment of type 2 diabetes and their effect on cardiovascular health. • Injectable therapies, including insulin, for use in patients with type 2 diabetes. • New and emerging strategies for patients with type 1 diabetes. Learning Objectives At course completion, participants should be able to: • Identify the different pathophysiologic defects associated with type 2 diabetes and how all the pharmacologic agents (oral and injectable) address these specific abnormalities. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available. • Review the recently published cardiovascular outcome trials (CVOTs) on oral and injectable type 2 medications. • Discuss the implications of recently published cardiovascular outcome trials (CVOTS) on oral and injectable type 2 medications. • Discuss approaches to combination therapy with the currently available oral agents, as well as physician and patient-directed insulin titration strategies and the basal-bolus approach. • Outline the most up-to-date clinical information on GLP-1 receptor agonists and SGLT-2 inhibitors. • Design a treatment plan for multiple daily injection regimens and insulin pump therapy. • Interpret continuous glucose monitoring data. • Select effective therapeutic adjustments based on trending or rate of change arrows, time in range, and standard deviation. • Evaluate the physical and emotional barriers that prevent patients with diabetes from being persistent and adherent to their therapeutic regimen(s). • Employ innovative and dynamic strategies for communication with patients to strengthen provider-patient relations and improve patient outcomes.
