Primary care clinicians (PCCs) are ideally suited to educate and advise people with type 2 diabetes about basal insulin. This program will inform PCCs about current recommendations and advances in the safe and effective use of basal insulin, so they can provide individualized, appropriate care for their patients.

This talk will provide an opportunity for the learner to (anonymously) test his/her knowledge in the management of people with type 2 diabetes using cases and an ARS. The cases will also be used to illustrate the pathophysiology of type 2 diabetes and provide an opportunity for developing a practical approach to treating people with type 2 diabetes, utilizing the commonest and newest medications available. The cases will also help the learners use medications safely and understand advantages and disadvantages, and common side effects of each class of medication. Finally a practical approach to the initiation and intensification of basal insulin will be covered.

In this talk, the speaker will discuss goals of treatment as it relates to microvascular complication risk reduction and reasons for using insulin in specific populations, focusing on type 2 diabetes. Additionally, learners will review currently available short- and long-acting insulins on the U.S. market and associated risks and benefits of use. Finally, the speaker will expand on the practical use of insulin (i.e., when to start, how to titrate, etc.).

This series of interactive cases will provide an opportunity for the learner to increase their knowledge in the management of people with type 2 diabetes on insulin therapy. The cases will illustrate expert guidelines and general strategies around use of insulin and combinations of injectables for type 2 diabetes, including a practical approach to the initiation and intensification of basal insulin. You will learn the advantages and disadvantages of combination injectable medications as well as how to use them safely and appropriately.

This talk will cover recent clinical trials presented at the ADA in 2019 that have an impact on the management of diabetes, such as cardiovascular outcomes trials and the first oral GLP-1 RA phase 3 data. The faculty will take you through the latest guidelines from the ADA regarding the management of type 2 diabetes and describe how recent clinical trial data has been integrated in to these guidelines. After this meeting review, you will be equipped to manage type 2 diabetes based on these guidelines. Please note that any data, indications, and guidelines presented in this activity are current as of the recording/release on February 7, 2020, and they are subject to change as new information is published.

Combining Oral Diabetes Therapies: How, When, Who, and Why?

1.00 CME/MOC
1.00 AANP | 0.40 Pharmacology |

Individualized care is crucial to successful type 2 diabetes (T2DM) management. The emergence of newer oral therapies that not only help to improve glycemic control but also reduce cardiovascular and other risks has dramatically changed the landscape of diabetes care. Understanding when and how to intensify treatment with this expanded toolbox is challenging for clinicians. By reviewing the latest guidelines and clinical data, participants will receive practical strategies to maximize and combine oral therapies, increase adherence, and individualize care in the treatment of diabetes.
