The Diabetes Galaxy: Looking Beyond Glycemic Management. Program 187

The North Suburban Pharmacists of Chicagoland is providing our virtual continuing pharmacy education program experience. NSP is committed to providing thoughtful and engaging programs. Your support of ALL pharmacy organizations (ex. IPhA, NSP, APhA, etc.) is more important now than ever. How we are practicing our profession during this difficult time has been challenging and ever evolving. We will be working to provide virtual programs until it is deemed safe to provide live programs again. NSP is hopeful that you will participate and grow your knowledge with us.

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, clinicians 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

At the conclusion of the program, the pharmacist and pharmacy technician will be able to:

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

2. Describe recommendations for appropriately selecting glycemic-lowering medications to reduce ASCVD, HF and/or CKD risk in patients with type 2 diabetes.

3.  Discuss contraindications and adverse effect considerations when recommending therapies for people with type 2 diabetes.

4.  Formulate patient-centered treatment plans for people with diabetes to reduce cardio-metabolic and renal risk.
