Real World Evidence for Clinical Decision Making in Diabetes: Opportunities and Challenges 

Friday May 17, 2024 from 12:00–1:00 pm ET 

Speakers: Hojin Shin, PhD and Katsiaryna Bykov, PharmD, ScD

Moderator: Dr. Elisabetta Patorno, Past-Chair, ADA Public Health & Epidemiology Interest Group 


Real-world data offer great potential to evaluate the effectiveness and safety of diabetes medications in pharmacoepidemiologic studies, when randomized controlled trials are not available, but come with challenges. This webinar will provide an overview of what is real world evidence (RWE) and the considerations when using or interpreting RWE. Many RWE studies can incur substantial bias not from data limitations or lack of randomization, but from avoidable, bias-inducing study design choices. 

Dr. Hojin Shin will provide an overview of what is RWE and its potential role in clinical decision-making. Dr. Katsiaryna Bykov will present major sources of avoidable bias in RWE studies of medication safety and effectiveness and discuss potential solutions and current efforts to improve the quality of RWE studies.

Back to School: Bringing Diabetes Devices into the Classroom 

Thursday May 23, 2024 from 4:00–5:00 pm ET 

Speakers:  Christine March, MD and Crystal Woodward, MPS 

Moderators: Stuart Weinzimer, MD  and Henry Rodriguez, MD 


In this webinar, we will provide a broad overview of the use of diabetes devices in schools with special attention to continuous glucose monitors. In addition to reviewing the current literature on different perspectives for device use in school, we will review the legal framework to support device use in school and ongoing advocacy efforts at the ADA. Information is geared to help diabetes health care professionals counsel patients and families and communicate with schools on device use in that setting.
