An increasingly large number of patients with diabetes means more insulin pumps are being utilized and drug therapy continues to become complex and often difficult to understand. Incretin mimetics can improve glucose control with a decreased amount of insulin.  When used appropriately this can decrease weight and decrease risk of complications from diabetes.  Insulin pumps can improve not only blood sugars but quality of life.  Becoming familiar with both non-insulin injected medication and insulin pumps is vital for all health care providers. In this program Laurie Klipfel, RN, MSN, APN-BC, CDE, will guide you through the treatment options and make the difficult concepts easy to understand and apply in clinical practice. 



NOTE: Tuition includes one free CE Certificate (participant will be able to print the certificate of completion after completing and passing the on-line post-test evaluation).
