The Evolution of Basal Insulins: One Small Step or a Giant Leap?
The Evolution of Basal Insulins: One Small Step or a Giant Leap? is planned as part of a real-time virtual grand rounds series that captures the spirit of a traditional in-person live grand rounds meeting. The content of these programs will all relate to the care of some aspect of diabetes and/or one of its related conditions or comorbidities. The session will consist of faculty presentations of didactic material which will be enhanced by discussions about clinical interpretations and applications.
This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the joint providership of Primary Care Network and PlatformQ Health Education, LLC. Primary Care Network is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
Live Online Activity: Thursday, October 13, 2016 from 12:00PM – 1:00PM EST.
Primary Care Network designates this live activity for a maximum of 1 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
Online On-Demand Enduring Material
Primary Care Network designates this enduring material for a maximum of 1 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
The enduring material will be available from October 13, 2016 – April 13, 2017.
The ACCME (Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education) and the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) have collaborated to simplify the integration of Maintenance of Certification (MOC) and accredited CME. This collaboration expands the number and diversity of accredited CME activities registered in ABIM’s MOC program, offering ABIM Board Certified physicians more options for receiving MOC points through their participation in CME activities.
Successful completion of this CME activity, which includes participation in the evaluation component, enables the participant to earn up to 1 MOC point in the American Board of Internal Medicine’s (ABIM) Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program. Participants will earn MOC points equivalent to the amount of CME credits claimed for the activity. It is the CME activity provider’s responsibility to submit participant completion information to ACCME for the purpose of granting ABIM MOC credit. Upon completion, your information will be shared with ABIM through Primary Care Network’s ACCME Program and Activity Reporting System (PARS).
At the conclusion of this activity, participants will be able to:
- Describe the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of the newer basal insulin formulations, and how these differ from older formulations
- Weigh the pros and cons of initiating or switching to a newer basal insulin formulation
- Identify appropriate insulin treatment designs and management methods that utilize newer long-acting basal insulins alone or in combination with a GLP-1 receptor agonist or pre-meal rapid acting insulin
Jointly provided by Primary Care Network, PlatformQ Health Education, LLC and its collaborating partner Joslin Diabetes Center.
Participant will need to initially complete a short registration form with Diabetes Series Live to participate in this activity. Future participation in Diabetes Series Live activities will allow you to skip the registration process and only require you to log-in.
