activity is presented by the Stanford Center for
Continuing Medical Education. Please visit us at “cme.stanford.edu”. – [Narrator] Welcome to our course on Type Two Diabetes
Management in primary care. We will discuss the basics of
type two diabetes management, including prevalence of, screening for, and diagnostic criteria
for type two diabetes. The basics will be tied
to the recommendations for blood glucose and A1C according to the American
Diabetes Association. We will review the updated ADA algorithm for 2018 and discuss suggestions for lifestyle management guidelines to include in your treatment plans. We will also explore and
review, two unique cases, as they unfold over the course of multiple patient appointments. Case one presents cultural
challenges to treatment and case 2 addresses how
patient adherence issues effect treatment, and
doctor-patient communication. Last, we will recap
how the core principles of diabetes management were
applied to these two cases. And wrap up with suggested
resources, and references from course content. At the end of this course,
you will be able to recognize the new most
recent treatment options for type two diabetes,
and the pros and cons of medications in each treatment category. For example, GLP1, SGLT2,
combination therapy, etcetera. Insulin therapy is not
addressed in this course. Evaluate patients for
appropriate treatments and comorbidities as they apply to the most recent treatment options. Evaluate patients for
medication, treatment adherence. Formulate progression of treatment plans for patients who have not
improved on current regimens. Use culturally sensitive
communication tactics when discussing importance
and safety of medication, treatment adherence with patients. Thank you for investing time in this…
