Anyone who provides care for people with (or at risk for) diabetes knows that these patients often have a myriad of co-morbidities and complications, and that optimizing their care is frequently complex and challenging.  It is with these challenges in mind that we have developed “Diabetes and Cardiometabolic Syndrome in Primary Care”, which will provide comprehensive updates, practice recommendations, and the newest evidence-based strategies for the treatment, prevention, and care of the person with diabetes.  

Educational formats include didactic lectures, case-based clinical vignettes, and workshops to illustrate applicability of treatment knowledge in the patient-care setting, and will be attended by 200-300 primary care clinicians from across the nation and around the world. Interactive question-and-answer sessions utilizing audience response technology will clarify educational points and issues. Outcomes measurements will be based on audience response questions, when applicable, and a post-program evaluation that will include collection of data on participant perceptions on the potential impact of practice process and treatment designs.

Topics covered include:

  • Treating patients with type 2 diabetes, who are not achieving their therapeutic goals

  • Office-based assessment and treatment of co-morbidities and complications

  • Individualizing multifaceted approaches to lifestyle and weight management

  • Controlling blood glucose:  guidance for more effective treatment plans
