  • Overview

    Diabetes treatment options continue to expand. While this allows providers to have a larger armamentarium for treatment, questions still remain about the best option(s) to use in certain patients. Clinical inertia related to progressive diabetes management also exists for many patients and providers, making successful glycemic control even more difficult. This program will provide and overview of strategies used for recognizing and overcoming clinical inertia. It will also provide an overview of commonly used diabetes treatment options, and focus on which options are best for certain patients.

    30 days following this live webinar, participants will be invited to participate in a 30-minute follow-up home study (0.5 credit hour) that will provide the opportunity to review the main concepts from the webinar and apply what has been learned to patient cases related to diabetes treatment options.in patients.
