Patient Education

This short curriculum cuts to the heart of primary and secondary cardiovascular disease prevention in people with type 2 diabetes. The following two activities will help you individualize treatment and optimize adherence through shared decision-making tactics that account for CV risk factors, comorbidities, and patient preferences. This curriculum includes: • 1 educational video webcast • 1 simulated digital “tele-visit” with a standardized patient Pri-Med has partnered with RealCME to offer the Pri-Med community the innovative opportunity to schedule time for a simulated digital “tele-visit” with a standardized patient (SP), who is trained to simulate the symptoms and characteristics of patients you see in your practice. This interactive session is designed to complement the “Heart of the Matter” video webcast by enabling you to practice shared-decision making. You can benefit from scheduling this activity after viewing the educational webcast, but you are also welcome to sign up for this simulated digital tele-visit activity without viewing the webcast. The “patient” is a 52-year-old who is following up with you for their type 2 diabetes, with a history of obesity, hypertension, hypercholesterolemia, and coronary artery disease. The patient is on maximum dose of metformin, with an A1c today of 8.6%. A highly experienced observer will review your session and send you feedback via a customized scorecard. There is no cost for this activity, but there are limited sessions available.

Continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) is at the forefront of new diabetes technologies and can lead to improved care for many people, but the expanding market challenges primary care clinicians to keep up with guidelines on how and when to use personal and professional CGM devices. This curriculum, developed in partnership with the Association of Diabetes Care and Education Specialists (ADCES), will educate clinicians on how to identify people who are candidates for CGM, interpret CGM data, and adjust treatment plans, while effectively involving patients in these decisions. These practical strategies and insights for using CGM will help transform this new technology from a specialty-based tool to an integral part of diabetes management in the primary care setting. You can earn up to 1.5 CME/CE credits in total by completing all 3 of the modules in this curriculum. Two podcasts are also included that are designed to share with patients who want to know more about CGM; they do not qualify for CME/CE credit. This curriculum includes: • A series of 3 text-based adaptive learning modules (~30 minutes each) • 2 Patient education podcasts (~15-20 minutes each)
