Expiration Date: December 31, 2024 Release Date: January 03, 2022 Credit type: AMA (1.00) | AAPA (1.00) | ANCC (1.00)

Self-monitoring of blood glucose (BG) levels is critical to daily self-management for people with diabetes. Studies have shown that intensive insulin regimens and BG control corresponded with better glycemic control and have resulted in a significant decrease in the microvascular complications of diabetes. Because CGM is still an evolving technology, both clinicians and patients would benefit from engaging, interactive, and evidence-based education to improve the utilization of these tools. 

Learning Objectives:

  • Develop new communication strategies to help their patients with diabetes optimize use of CGM technology to improve their glycemic control.
  • Improve their ability to select patients with diabetes who will benefit from the use of CGM technology.
  • Improve their ability to manage patients with diabetes and prevent severe acute complications such as hypoglycemia and diabetic ketoacidosis.
