Course Description:

In this web-based program, physicians will learn how recent developments in continuous glucose monitoring have advanced the management of Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes. Supported by an educational grant from Abbott.

Course Objectives:

• Outline and discuss the evidentiary basis for senor/patch-based CGM technologies, and how to best Implement CGM-based technologies into their overall diabetes care plans for patients with T1D and T2D.
• Analyze the rationale and evidence for recommending and facilitating adoption of technology-centric CGM monitoring and treatment plans using patch-and-reader-based technologies.
• Compare and contrast available CGM-facilitating monitoring technologies and pair such technologies with optimal patient profiles.
• Educate patients with diabetes about the rationale, evidence, and outcome- optimizing results associated with technology-based, patient-centric and physician-directed CGM monitoring strategies that can be used to effect optimal lifestyle, diet-, and pharmacology-based approaches to attaining guideline-based HA1c levels in patients with T1d and T2D.
• Identify which patients with diabetes are ideal candidates for a technology-based, patient-directed glucose monitoring system.
