Comprehensive Diabetes Guideline Review and Device Workshop

Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) accounts for up to 95% of diagnosed cases in adults. Treatment recommendations from the American Diabetes Association/European Association for the Study of Diabetes (ADA/EASD) and the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists/American College of Endocrinology (AACE/ACE) focus on individualized care that is more aggressive in earlier stages of disease. This session will update the audience of the current evidence-based guidelines for the management of type 2 diabetes, and review currently available treatments and mechanisms of delivery. .

  • Review the current ADA guidelines for the management of type 2 diabetes to optimize outcomes in patients with type 2 diabetes and atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD), heart failure and chronic kidney disease.
  • Identify drug therapy options for patients with type 2 diabetes with consideration to avoiding hypoglycemia and weight gain and minimizing cost. 
  • Demonstrate appropriate injection and administration technique of multiple devices (e.g. insulins, GLP-1RAs, glucagon, and pen  needles) . 
  • Explain the value of continuous glucose monitor downloads and develop suggestions for medication adjustments.
