Course Description:
While 1 in 13 Americans have diabetes; 1 in 4 are diagnosed with pre-diabetes.

All healthcare professionals will care for patients with diabetes, pre-diabetes or metabolic syndrome on a daily basis, regardless of specialty. As management of diabetes becomes increasingly complex, it is imperative to keep up to date on new treatment options and standards regarding complication prevention. You play an important role in diabetes prevention, care, and management. Your role begins with a solid undertanding of diabetes and its treatment.

Attend this seminar and increase your understanding of diabetes and pre-diabetes, and learn evidence-based pharmacological and non-pharmacological techniques for glucose control. You will leave with an in-depth understanding of the latest approaches in assessing and treating patients with diabetes, as well as new skills to apply for those at risk for diabetes.

Laurie Klipfel will provide you with strategies to optimize patient education and empowerment so you can improve the care you provide to diabetes patients.
