CME Program and Performance Improvement Study
June 22, 2013
Hyatt Regency McCormick Place
This continuing medical education initiative has two components:
- One day live activity offering up to 5.75 continuing education credits focusing on:
- standards of care in diabetes
- insulin intensification
- diabetic foot and wound care in the patient with diabetes
- managing kidney disease in the patient with diabetes
- treating older adults with diabetes
- new therapies and basal insulins
- latent autoimmune diabetes in adults
- Web-based, point-of-care, six-month Performance Improvement (PI) study offering 20 continuing credits.
For the Performance Improvement study, each health care professional will track 25 patients with diabetes during the six month process. The data entry will take less than 10 minutes per patient and is fully web-based.
This activity is intended for primary care physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners and other health care professionals who manage patients with diabetes.
This activity will address evidence-based peer-reviewed clinical data and expert opinion on quality diabetes management.
At the conclusion of this activity, attendees should be able to:
- Identify the current 2013 ADA Standards of Care for classifying, diagnosing, preventing and treating prediabetes and diabetes.
- Assess pharmacologic treatment options for managing hyperglycemia in order to individualize treatment protocols.
- Apply clinical decision-making tools to the assessment and treatment of complications related to diabetes.
- Develop a more aggressive, effective treatment plan for patients with diabetes.
