Translating Clinical Evidence for Sensor-Based Glucose Monitoring and Technological Innovations to the Front Lines of Clinical Practice

Upon completion of the proposed program activities, physicians will be able to:

  • Outline and discuss the evidentiary basis for senor/patch-based CGM technologies, and how to best Implement CGM-based technologies into their overall diabetes care plans for patients with T1D and T2D.
  • Analyze the rationale and evidence for recommending and facilitating adoption of technology-centric CGM monitoring and treatment plans using patch-and-reader-based technologies.
  • Compare and contrast available CGM-facilitating monitoring technologies and pair such technologies with optimal patient profiles.
  • Educate patients with diabetes about the rationale, evidence, and outcome- optimizing results associated with technology-based, patient-centric and physician-directed CGM monitoring strategies that can be used to effect optimal lifestyle, diet-, and pharmacology-based approaches to attaining guideline-based HA1c levels in patients with T1d and T2D.
  • Identify which patients with diabetes are ideal candidates for a technology-based, patient-directed glucose monitoring system.
  • Interpret and apply data and results from clinical trials and experts with experience in CGM-facilitating monitoring technologies to improve patient care, improve safety of drug therapy for T1D and T2D, detect and mitigate risk of hypoglycemia, improve patient- and physician-directed changes in antidiabetic therapy, reinforce the safe use of antidiabetic drugs, and facilitate patient-activated drug titration, glycemic monitoring and disease management.
  • Translate landmark clinical studies focused on CGM-based technologies to the front lines of clinical practice in the diabetes and primary care setting; and understand the translational implications of deploying sensor-based, CGM-based technologies as a foundational approach to improving outcomes in patients across the spectrum of diabetes.
  • Educate other clinical providers on the diabetes care team about the rationale, role, evidence, and outcome-enhancing results that are derived from employing technology-based CGM strategies—both patient- and physician-directed—across the broad spectrum of patients with diabetes.
