Event Overview
Welcome message:

Anyone who provides care for people with (or at risk for) diabetes knows that these patients often have a myriad of comorbidities and complications, and that optimizing their care is frequently complex and challenging. It is with these challenges in mind that Harvard Medical School faculty have developed this CME program, Diabetes and Cardiometabolic Syndrome in Primary Care.   


This program provides comprehensive updates, practice recommendations, and the newest evidence-based strategies for the treatment and care of the person with or at risk for diabetes. By attending, you can ensure that you are current with state-of-the-art approaches to:


Diabetes screening

Pharmacological management of diabetes, including insulin and non-insulin treatments

The latest advances in insulin delivery and glucose monitoring

Treating complications and comorbidities, including dyslipidemia, hypertension, peripheral vascular disease, cardiovascular disease, kidney disease, and the diabetic foot

Lifestyle interventions

Care of elderly patients with diabetes

Treatment of obesity

Integrating emerging concepts and therapies into day-to-day practice

EDUCATION TO OPTIMIZE PATIENT CARE AND OUTCOMES


Education is focused on optimized patient care and outcomes and improving skills in the following areas:


Using insulin: when to start, which insulins to choose, and how to intensify treatment

Treating people with type 2 diabetes who are not achieving their therapeutic goals

Office-based assessment and treatment of comorbidities and complications

Individualizing multifaceted approaches to lifestyle and weight management

Assessing the severity and optimizing management of non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH)

Personalizing nutrition plans and exercise prescriptions

Cardiovascular risk reduction and care

Improving outcomes for diabetic foot disease

Optimizing treatment and care of older patients and people with diverse ethnic backgrounds

Recognizing and treating recently recognized comorbidities such as sleep apnea and steatohepatitis

Preparing for emerging strategies and treatments that will soon impact your day-to-day practice
