Program Description

Incorrect administration of insulin (e.g., too little, too much, or at wrong times) can result in transient and serious hypo- and hyperglycemia, wide glycemic excursions, and diabetic ketoacidosis. Approximately 31% of diabetes patients are treated with insulin. We will discuss proper  techniques  and other important factors.

Participant Program Objectives

At the conclusion of this program, the pharmacist will be able to:

  1. Describe steps to correctly prepare and administer injectable diabetes therapies.
  2. Select an appropriate syringe/needle based on patient and therapy specific factors.
  3. Describe storage requirements for injectable products.
  4. Discuss sharps disposal options.

At the conclusion of this program, the technician will be able to:

  1. Describe how to calculate quantity and day supply that accounts for correct use of injectable diabetes therapies.
  2. Select supplies needed to complete orders for continuous glucose monitors.
  3. Recognize situations involving injectable diabetes medications and devices that should be referred to a pharmacist for consultation.
