Diabetes Online Series (Multiple Modules)
Over the past 10 years, the managment of A1C, blood pressure and LDL cholesterol levels has increased in diabetes patients. This has been accompanied by improvements in cardiovascular outcomes and has led to substantial reductions in end-stage microvascular complications. Nevertheless, 33–49% of patients still do not meet targets for glycemic, blood pressure or cholesterol control, and only 14% meet targets for all three measures while also avoiding smoking.
Optimal diabetes management requires an organized, systematic approach and the involvement of a coordinated team of dedicated healthcare professionals working in an environment where patient-centered, high-quality care is a priority. This online series will provide practical, evidence-based strategies to strengthen the healthcare team's competencies.
Family physicians, general internists, hospitalists, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, pharmacists, dietitians and respiratory therapists.
