T2DM: A Case-based Approach

Effective and Timely Management of Patients with T2DM: A Case-based Approach

CME Information

Program Overview

Primary care clinicians in all settings are frequently not meeting guideline-recommended performance measures for diabetes. Many clinicians cite an improved understanding of the mechanisms of action of anti-hyperglycemic agents in the context of T2DM pathophysiology as an urgent educational need. The recent approvals of novel anti-hyperglycemic agents, in addition to the publication of cardiovascular outcomes results for some of the non-insulin therapies, warrant education for clinicians who are unclear on which therapies to initiate and how and when to appropriately intensify anti-hyperglycemic therapies. Evidence suggests that primary care clinicians are also unsure when to initiate insulin therapy, which insulin and how much to use, and how to intensify insulin in patients who need it. Another contributor to poor patient outcomes is non-adherence to therapies, whether due to fear of injections, fear of side effects, or increased dosing frequency and/or pill burden.

Leading faculty in the field of T2DM management help address these gaps in this clinically relevant, case-based, patient-centered educational activity. Faculty review current guideline recommendations and clinical-trial data pertaining to non-insulin, insulin, and insulin plus non-insulin therapies. Faculty provide strategies for effective patient management and communication.

This activity was developed from the live session held during the MEDX Regional CME conference in Atlanta, GA on September 23, 2016.

Learning Objectives

After completing this activity, the participant should be better able to:

Module 1: New Thinking and Approaches in the Management of Type 2 Diabetes
