Hypoglycemia Prevention Starts in Primary Care: Evidence-Based Interventions for Mitigating Risk and Improving Patient Outcomes

Hypoglycemia Prevention Starts in Primary Care: Evidence-Based Interventions for Mitigating Risk and Improving Patient Outcomes


Tuesday, September 22, 2020

Live Webcast: 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM EST

Overview

The risk of hypoglycemia is a critical limiting factor in glycemic management of individuals with diabetes. Patients are often unaware of the autonomic warning symptoms and diverse causes of hypoglycemia, highlighting a serious need for individualized patient education and multifactorial intervention. In this series of webcasts, expert faculty will review key resources and current guidelines/standards of care to facilitate identification and management of patients at risk of hypoglycemia. Advances in treatment of hypoglycemic episodes both for prevention and severe emergency situations will be addressed. As a unique feature to this program, participants are encouraged to submit their own challenging cases for faculty to dissect with a focus on common challenges and expert, evidence-based guidance.

Benefits of participating

  • Review the mechanisms of hypoglycemia unawareness, risk factors, and causes
  • Integrate strategies used by the experts in the prevention of hypoglycemia in patients with diabetes
  • Assimilate recent clinical trial data for the treatment of hypoglycemia to improve patient outcomes and quality of life
  • Learn practical approaches to challenging patient cases from your peers and faculty to expand your treatment and management armamentarium for patients with diabetes

Target Audience

This educational program is directed toward primary care providers in the US who treat patients with Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes mellitus, including PCPs, NPs, and PAs.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be better prepared to:

  • Recognize the risk and occurrence of hypoglycemia in "THE" management of patients with diabetes
  • Integrate new guideline recommendations in the prevention of hypoglycemic events into practice for patients with diabetes
  • Describe how patients at risk for severe hypoglycemic episodes and their caregivers can be counseled on how to use new hypoglycemic rescue products
  • Evaluate the efficacy and safety of newly approved and emerging therapeutic agents for severe hypoglycemic episodes to reduce fear and barriers associated with decisions to intensify dosing of antihyperglycemic therapies
