    It’s a Whole New World: The 2023 Diabetes Guideline Update. Program 201.

    Program Description

    Evidence-based guidelines and recommendations for the prevention, early detection, and treatment of diabetes are critical to optimal health and outcomes for people with diabetes. It is well known that monotherapy cannot achieve glycemic control for many people. When initiating a second-line therapy, pharmacists must select among several treatment options and look beyond glycemic lowering. This interactive session will discuss the evidence and best practices of care for people with diabetes, including a review of current American Diabetes Association pharmacotherapy standards of care and the preferred treatment options to improve A1c, cardio-metabolic and renal health, and reduce the risks associated with diabetes.

    Pharmacist Program Objectives

    .  1.      Summarize recent changes to the American Diabetes Association Management of Hyperglycemia in Type 2 Diabetes.

    • 2.      Discuss the rationale regarding therapeutic decision making when selecting medication therapy for people with type 2 diabetes.
    • 3.      Formulate patient-centered treatment plans for people with diabetes to reduce cardio-metabolic and renal risk.  


    Pharmacy Technician Program Objectives

    1. Summarize recent changes to the American Diabetes Association Management of Hyperglycemia in Type 2 Diabetes

    2. Identify risk factors for diabetes

    3. List the classes of medications used to treat diabetes

    4. Discuss contraindications and adverse effects of medications used in the treatment of diabetes


    This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of pharmacists and pharmacy technicians.
