2019 Diabetes Update for Primary Care Providers
May 31, 2019
This is a new one-day course on diabetes geared towards primary care providers. There is an immense need for provider education as the incidence of diabetes in the general population reaches 10%; primary care clinics carry the major burden of these patients. Didactic lectures and interactive workshops offered in this program will provide key information on current classification of diabetes, glycemic targets, as well as effective diagnostic and management strategies using available therapeutic modalities. Important highlights of this course include an update on the cardiovascular outcome trials of pharmacologic agents for diabetes and cost effective disease management. Offerings also include workshops which provide interactive case discussions on effective insulin use, lipid therapy, inpatient glycemic management, and newer diabetes technologies.
