    Objectives of the Presentation

    Participants should be able to:

    • Summarize the natural progression of type 2 diabetes and how that is reflected in signs such as the glycemic monitoring patterns and other key manifestations.
    • Describe the current and newer insulins, and how they may be utilized in the design of an insulin replacement program.
    • Describe the process of designing, initiating, managing, and providing educational support for individualized insulin regimens to achieve targeted levels of glycemic control for people with diabetes.
    • List common obstacles to insulin initiation, treatment, and adherence stemming from patient, provider, and office-systems based issues, and methods to address them.

        Take-Away Points of the Presentation

        1. The need to advance treatment of type 2 diabetes should not be delayed when clinically indicated, and there are strategies that can be used to accomplish this, addressing barriers in an efficient and effective manner.

        2. When basal insulin alone is not sufficient to achieve glycemic control goals, there are now multiple options to consider when advancing treatment.

        3. It is important to think about how you can insure that your patients who need insulin therapy can get optimized care and support through a coordinated approach from your office and specialty providers if/when needed.
