Practical Ways to Achieve Targets in Diabetes Care
Barbara Davis Center Keystone Conference
July 17 - 20, 2014
This course is designed to help healthcare providers caring for patients with diabetes, including but not limited to, endocrinologists/diabetes specialists, internists, pediatricians, family physicians, physician assistants, medical residents, fellows, nurse practitioners, nurses, dietitians and certified diabetes educators. During the course of this four-day conference, we will emphasize the challenges in day-to-day management of diabetes and practical ways to overcome those hurdles, specifically using new technologies. The discussions will also focus on causes of obesity in type 2 diabetes, new therapeutic options and ways of tackling and managing obesity along with insulin resistance. The participants will have an opportunity to participate in an intimate Meet the Peers session (MDs, RNs, and educators) as well and ask a patient/provider questions in an open-discussion. For type 1 diabetes, there will be a special session on upcoming Closed Loop technologies and how to better implement them in everyday care. In addition, the deliberations will include recent data analysis of SMBG and type 2 diabetes from the ACCORD study and ways to reduce hypoglycemia in both type 1 and type 2 diabetes. The emerging markers and immunology interventions for treatment of type 1 diabetes will be discussed.
Upon completion of the program, the participant should be able to:
1. Assess diabetes outcomes as they relate to long term complications and hypoglycemia.
2. Highlight controversies in diabetes treatment options.
3. Detect new markers and immunological aspects of type 1 diabetes.
4. Explain and implement closed-loop therapy options.
5. Discuss challenges in diabetes management issues especially focused on cutting-edge Mobile Health and Telemedicine.
6. Generate new ideas through interactions with peers and patients.
7. Assess special issues with diabetes, for example, bio-similars in diabetes care.
8. Distinguish various ways to achieve target weight in obese patients and discuss role of Bariatric Surgery for both type 1 and type 2 diabetes.
