To help nurse practitioners address the unmet needs of patients in this area, expert faculty will discuss common barriers to the initiation of and adherence to insulin therapy, strategies to overcome these barriers, especially addressing financial considerations, as well as implementing DMSE/S algorithm of care for improved patient outcomes. A concluding discussion will present evidence-based strategies for integrating the latest in insulin formulations into an overall diabetes management program designed to improve glycemic control; reduce risk of hypoglycemia; and make insulin therapy more convenient, manageable, and effective.
