Educational Objectives
Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Establish protocols and clinical decision trees for incorporating and implementing sensor-based CGM within the management workflow for diabetes care by family medicine and primary care specialists
  • Execute the day-to-day, patient-centric mechanics of how CGM practice behaviors/devices are best incorporated by family medicine and primary care specialists and, specifically, initiate and maintain persons with diabetes on devices that facilitate CGM-based glycemic management of Type 2 diabetes (T2D)
  • Explain the medical and health metrics-based rationale for incorporating sensor-based CGM as a foundational technology and clinical strategy to optimize glycemic management of persons with diabetes managed by family medicine and primary care specialists
  • Implement clinical strategies based on sensor-based CGM into the mainstream practices in primary care to optimize management of persons with impaired glycemic control across the spectrum of diabetes care
  • Outline the evidence-based support for sensor-based CGM to achieve optimal glycemic management in persons with T2D by family medicine and primary care specialists
  • Interpret and apply the results of ambulatory glucose profiles (AGPs) that are generated by sensor-based CGM device, and educate patients about the treatment implications of these results
