Moving Beyond Diabetes: Managing the Cardiometabolic Profile – A Virtual Patient Simulation

These virtual patients will address various knowledge gaps in diabetes and cardiometabolic risk treatement and management. Areas for patient simulation evaluation and practice will include a review of the guidelines for glycemic control, management of cardiovascular risk in a patient with diabetes and predicting the clinical manifestations of diabetes when coexisting with heart failure or chronic kidney disease.

Each patient case will require 30-minutes to complete. It will require a total of 60-minutes to complete the two patient case simulations.

 

Target Audience

Endocrinologists, primary care providers, cardiologists, nephrologists, certified diabetes educators, nurse practitioner/physician assistants, and nurses

 

Learning Objectives

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

  • Demonstrate and implement diagnostic and therapeutic guidelines for glycemic control
  • Practice ways in which to manage cardiovascular risk in patients with diabetes.
  • Predict the clinical manifestations and treatment methods of diabetes when it coexists with heart failure or chronic kidney disease.
  • Utilizing virtual patient simulations, apply collaborative strategies into clinical practice to decrease cardiometabolic risk factors, delay progression of existing disease, and effectively manage clinically challenging cases.
  • Evaluate key considerations and the latest emerging data for managing diabetes and its associated comorbidities in the era of COVID-19.
