The Internist’s Approach to Leveraging Continuous Glucose Monitoring in Diabetes

Join us for a live symposium on the use of CGMs in clinical practice. Expert faculty will provide internists with the necessary knowledge and competence to initiate and optimally use CGM devices in appropriate patients with diabetes, with a key focus on developing strategies to overcome barriers to fully integrating CGM into daily practice.

Clinical Care Options (CCO) is committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for all our learners. Our decisions and preventive measures are guided by the requirements and recommendations of the CDC alongside federal, state, and local health authorities. We work with each program venue to implement preventive measures to reduce the potential spread of COVID-19. We will share venue-specific rules and regulations with registrants closer to the date of the meeting.

Program Overview
This program will provide expert insights on the initiation and optimal use of CGM devices in patients with diabetes, with a key focus on developing strategies to overcome barriers to fully integrating CGM into daily practice.

Goal Statement
The goal of this activity is to provide internists with the necessary knowledge and competence to initiate and optimally use CGM devices in appropriate patients with diabetes, with a key focus on developing strategies to overcome barriers to fully integrating CGM into daily practice.

Target Audience
The live symposium and online enduring activities will be designed to meet the educational needs of internists and advanced practice professionals (nurse practitioners/physician assistants), as well as other HCPs who care for patients with diabetes.

Learning Objectives
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Describe the main components and key metrics of available CGM devices
  • Discuss the benefits of CGM metrics in optimizing glycemic control and reducing hypoglycemia risk in patients with T1D and T2D
  • Identify patient qualities that would make them good candidates for CGM
  • Identify strategies to overcome patient and HCP barriers to CGM
