Practical Ways to Achieve Targets in Diabetes Care Keystone, CO 7/14/2016 12:00:00 PM 7/17/2016 11:00 AM
This course is designed to help healthcare providers caring for patients with diabetes, including but not limited to, endocrinologists/diabetes specialists, internists, pediatricians, family physicians, physician assistants, medical residents, fellows, nurse practitioners, nurses, dietitians and certified diabetes educators. During the course of this four-day conference, we will emphasize the challenges in day-to-day management of diabetes and practical ways to overcome those hurdles, specifically using new technologies. The discussions will also focus on causes of obesity in type 2 diabetes, new therapeutic options and ways of tackling and managing obesity along with insulin resistance. The participants will have an opportunity to participate in an intimate Meet the Peers session (MDs, RNs, and educators) as well and ask a patient/provider questions in an open-discussion. For type 1 diabetes, there will be a special session on upcoming Closed Loop technologies and how to better implement them in everyday care. In addition, the deliberations will include recent data analysis of SMBG and type 2 diabetes from the ACCORD study and ways to reduce hypoglycemia in both type 1 and type 2 diabetes. The emerging markers and immunology interventions for treatment of type 1 diabetes will be discussed.

Upon completion of the program, the participant should be able to:

1. Define hypoglycemia and recognize early warnings;
2. Analyze the management of comorbidities with diabetes;
3. Assess diabetes care costs and health economics;
4. Specify practical ways to introduce new therapies and technologies in Type 1 Diabetes;
5. Specify practical ways to initiate insulin for Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes.
