Upon completion of the proposed program activities, physicians will be able to:
- 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.
- Interpret and apply data and results from clinical trials and experts with experience in CGM-facilitating monitoring technologies to improve patient care, improve safety of drug therapy for T1D and T2D, detect and mitigate risk of hypoglycemia, improve patient- and physician-directed changes in antidiabetic therapy, reinforce the safe use of antidiabetic drugs, and facilitate patient-activated drug titration, glycemic monitoring and disease management.
- Translate landmark clinical studies focused on CGM-based technologies to the front lines of clinical practice in the diabetes and primary care setting; and understand the translational implications of deploying sensor-based, CGM-based technologies as a foundational approach to improving outcomes in patients across the spectrum of diabetes.
- Educate other clinical providers on the diabetes care team about the rationale, role, evidence, and outcome-enhancing results that are derived from employing technology-based CGM strategies—both patient- and physician-directed—across the broad spectrum of patients with diabetes.
Hardware and Software Requirements:
To participate in this program, viewers must have a PC or Macintosh computer that has active, ongoing internet access for the duration of the program, as well as a compatible Flash-viewer. An email address is required for registration, and a printer is required to print out the CME certificate.
When you participate in a CME activity offered by CMEducation Resources, we ask you for your name, degree, affiliation, street address, telephone number, fax number, and/or e-mail address (the "Information"). We use that Information in the following ways:
- We use the Information to grade your post-test and to send you a certificate of completion of the CME activity. If we use a third-party company to grade your post-test and issue certificates of completion, we will give the Information to that company for that purpose only.
- For each CME activity that you take, you must complete an evaluation questionnaire. That questionnaire asks if you are willing to participate in a follow-up survey. If you answer yes, we will use your name and contact information to send you the survey.
- We may use the Information to send you information about other CME activities that CMEducation Resources is offering.
- If our company is acquired by or merged into another company, we may make the Information available to the new owner/entity to use in the ways described above, to enable it to continue our business.
