Program Overview and Format
Back in your city by popular demand, the Fifth Annual Diabetes Masters program is a highly engaging and dynamic regional meeting designed to help healthcare professionals provide patient-centered care for individuals at risk for or diagnosed with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Because optimal diabetes care requires patient engagement and coordinated care across multiple healthcare disciplines, the goal of this activity is to encourage a multidisciplinary, collaborative approach to diabetes care that involves the patient in shared decision making.
Participants will be divided into small groups, and each group will be assigned a patient case for consideration throughout the program. Groups will rotate through a series of highly interactive breakout sessions that will include several simulated office visits with a standardized patient portraying the group’s assigned case. This format will allow for interaction and case development throughout the program.
The breakout discussions will also review and evaluate the most recent evidence regarding clinical applications of incretin therapies, sodium-glucose cotransporter-2 (SGLT2) inhibitors, and insulins as well as examine recent advances in the management of comorbid conditions prevalent in adults with T2DM.
At the conclusion of the breakout sessions, each group will apply their newly acquired knowledge to develop an individualized treatment plan for their assigned patient case. The treatment plans will be presented to and evaluated by expert faculty and program participants, and the group with the best case presentation will be awarded the “Diabetes Masters Certificate” during the closing awards ceremony.
