The Annual Clinical Management and Behavioral Interventions for Diabetes Care symposium will highlight the latest concepts in the treatment of type 2 diabetes. An estimated 29.1 million people have diabetes in the United States with 90-95% of these patients having type 2 diabetes mellitus. Despite improvement in the overall national quality indicators for diabetes care there remain a large number of individuals not meeting the recommended targets. Only 18% of the total population with diabetes is currently achieving the basic ABCs (A1c, Blood pressure, Cholesterol) targets in the United States. Initiating emerging therapeutic approaches into the delivery model can assist in achieving national targets. New nutritional and behavioral programs can provide support to the patient. The progressive nature of type 2 diabetes mellitus usually requires the addition of multiple oral agents and eventually leads to the requirement for initiation and persistent use of basal insulin to reach and maintain glycemic targets.
After attending this live activity, participants should be able to:
- Describe the latest statistics, standards of care and pathophysiologic mechanisms for treating and preventing diabetes.
- Assess unmet needs and treatment patterns of patients with type 2 diabetes.
- Implement an approach for psycho-social support and motivational interviewing in patients with type 2 diabetes.
- Summarize recent clinical trial data regarding the next generation of therapies in diabetes including oral agents, incretins and new insulins.
- Develop individualized approaches for effectively improving outcomes in relation to the complications of diabetes in the ambulatory settings.
- Understand how to integrate the new diabetes management options into the care of patients with diabetes.
