Endocrinology, Diabetes, & Metabolism
Starting and adjusting insulin in type 2 diabetics is within the scope of practice of primary care providers. In this presentation the speaker will use cases to demonstrate how the healthcare provider can safely and effectively start and adjust insulin using evidence-based tools, resources and techniques. At the end of this session, attendees will be able to initiate insulin using these resources and tools in a step-wise, clear and simple approach. During the session, attendees will have the opportunity to work through several cases using these tools and resources in order to familiarize themselves with this important topic and skill.
