Addressing Barriers to Insulin Initiation and Maintenance in Type 2 Diabetes: Practical Communication Tools to Improve Glycemic Control

This activity informs providers how to better initiate individualized treatment for patients with type 2 diabetes that are hesitant to insulin initiation. Also reviewed are the most up-to-date insulin therapies and the current challenges and opportunities to improve diabetes care in diverse and underserved patient populations.

The faculty panel includes a set of multidisciplinary diabetes specialists that collaboratively treat patients. You will also hear from actual patients. Their perspectives will provide insight into the daily challenges and quality of life issues that can occur when a patient is considering initiating insulin therapy. Also included are simulations that model appropriate patient/provider communication.

 

Target Audience

Certified diabetes educators, endocrinologists, family physicians, primary care providers, nurses, nurse practitioners, pharmacists and physician assistants.

 

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, participants will be able to (or better able to):

  1. Describe psychological insulin resistance (PIR) from the standpoints of both provider and patient
  2. Describe how low levels of adherence to therapeutic regimens in diabetes affect glycemic control and patient outcomes
  3. Review negative patient outcomes beyond poor glycemic control that may occur in patients who demonstrate psychological insulin resistance and/or low adherence
  4. Evaluate several evidence-based communicative strategies that may be employed in clinical practice to overcome barriers to insulin use
