At the conclusion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of the newer ultra-long basal and follow-on biologic (“biosimilar”) insulin formulations and how these differ from older formulations
  • Demonstrate methods to transition from analog basal insulin to ultra-long basal insulins and follow-on biologic (“biosimilar”) basal insulins to help achieve individualized patient treatment goals
  • Utilize evidence-based, guideline-driven protocols for therapeutic advancement to basal insulin therapy alone or in combination with other treatment modalities to achieve individualized patient goals
  • Identify potential patient, provider, and health care system barriers to initiation and titration of established and newer basal insulins, and methods to overcome these barriers
