European Diabetes Technology Course

Information Coming Soon

Educational Objectives

Following this course, participants should be able to:
  1. Evaluate the performance of diabetes technologies and identify principles for selecting, combining, and advancing therapy using technology.  
  2. Explain how to motivate patients to use the latest diabetes technologies to improve outcomes.
  3. Assess the utility of self-monitoring of blood glucose (SMBG) methods in improving management of difficult-to-treat patients.
  4. Assess the utility of continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) in improving management of difficult-to-treat patients.
  5. Assess the utility of insulin pump therapy and insulin dose calculators in improving management of difficult-to-treat patients.
  6. Enhance strategies to use technology to increase the effectiveness of lifestyle interventions, such as food plans, weight management, and physical activity for diabetes management.
  7. Initiate insulin therapy and adjust insulin doses based on glycemic pattern recognition.
  8. Recognize clinical situations where SMBG, CGM, or insulin pump therapy can improve outcomes and well-being for diabetes patients.
  9. Outline a systematic approach using technology for managing diabetes, diabetes complications, and complex medication regimens.
  10. Understand the scientific and engineering principles that support SMBG, CGM, and insulin pumps.
  11. Modify diabetes management for special populations, such as senior, pediatric, and pregnant patients using advanced diabetes technologies.
  12. Summarize new technologies that may be available in the next 5 years for management of hyperglycemia.
