Course Description
The goal of this course is to enhance the knowledge, competence, and skills of nurse practitioners (NPs), primary care physicians (PCPs), and physician assistants (PAs) in initiating and intensifying basal insulin therapies according to clinical practice guidelines to achieve timely and sustained glycemic control for individuals with T2DM. This program is designed for healthcare providers who have basic knowledge of diabetes care and experience in managing patients with T2DM but who may not be comfortable prescribing or intensifying basal insulin therapy.
