Lucia M. Novak, MSN, ANP-BC, BC-ADM - Building Skills for Clinical Practice: Optimizing Insulin Management and Personalizing Diabetes Care With Faster-Acting Formulations and Newer Options in Delivery Technology
Go online to PeerView.com/TZT860 to view the activity, download slides and practice aids, and complete the post-test to earn credit. Insulin is often a necessary treatment for people with diabetes. Yet, knowing when to properly initiate and titrate insulin therapy in people with type 1 and type 2 diabetes is unfamiliar to many clinicians. In this activity, an expert discusses current guidance for incorporating individual preferences in insulin therapy in a variety of treatment regimens, models effective communication strategies in telehealth visits, and offers approaches to overcome common barriers to therapeutic inertia and engage patients to improve time in range and reduce postprandial glucose excursions. Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better able to: Incorporate newer options in mealtime insulin and the latest advances in technology to overcome barriers to insulin initiation, simplify insulin delivery and dosing, improve postprandial glucose (PPG) levels and time in range (TIR), and enhance the quality of life in patients with insulin-treated diabetes, Engage in patient-centered discussions across the interprofessional care team to optimize use of the latest advances in rapid acting insulin and insulin technology to support patient-centered diabetes care.
Javier Morales, MD, FACP, FACE - Is Synergism the Secret to Success? Candid Conversations on Targeting GIP and GLP-1 to Individualize Treatment in Patients With T2DM and Obesity
Go online to PeerView.com/KZF860 to view the activity, download slides and practice aids, and complete the post-test to earn credit. Glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonists (GLP-1 RAs) have favorable, dose-dependent effects on both glycemia and weight, but dual incretin agonists may permit more intensive glycemic targets with greater weight loss. In this engaging PeerView Late Night activity, based on a recent live web broadcast, host Dr. Javier Morales is joined by special guests Drs. Juan Pablo Frías and Donna H. Ryan. Together, they discuss the interrelationship between type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and obesity, while exploring the potential role of combining glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP) with GLP-1 RAs as dual incretin agonist therapy. GIP/GLP-1 RAs are evaluated in terms of their ability to personalize treatment for patients with T2DM and obesity, specifically for controlling glycemia and weight and avoiding long-term complications. Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better able to: Identify the individual role the incretin hormone GIP plays in healthy physiology and the synergistic role it has when combined with GLP-1, Differentiate the mechanism of action of dual GIP/GLP-1 RA therapy from GLP-1 RAs and its resulting effects on glycemic control, body weight, and lipid metabolism in patients with T2DM, Intensify therapy in a timely and patient-centered manner to optimize control of glycemia and weight consistent with the latest available evidence and avoid long-term complications in patients with T2DM and obesity.
J. Fernando Arevalo - Seeing Eye to Eye: Improving Outcomes Among Rural Spanish-Speaking Latinx Patients With Diabetic Retinopathy or Diabetic Macular Edema
Go online to PeerView.com/DRR860 to view the activity, download slides and practice aids, and complete the post-test to earn credit. In this activity, an expert in ophthalmology discusses improving vision outcomes among Spanish-speaking patients with DR and DME, including those residing in rural areas. Upon completion of this CE activity, participants will be able to: Describe the barriers that Spanish-speaking individuals, especially those living in rural areas, frequently encounter when seeking a diagnosis and/or treatment of DR/DME, Construct coordinated care plans with multidisciplinary providers (eg, PCPs, endocrinologists, ophthalmologists, retina specialists) to provide timely diagnosis and treatment for Spanish-speaking patients with DR/DME, especially those residing in rural areas, Discuss the efficacy and safety of anti-VEGF agents in a manner that acknowledges and overcomes patient barriers regarding their use, Implement communication strategies (eg, telehealth, patient education tools, translation services) to help reduce barriers to care and enhance healthcare delivery toward the goal of improving DR/DME outcomes in Spanish-speaking patients, especially those residing in rural areas.
