A blended independent educational program designed by Springer Healthcare IME, in collaboration with the International Hypoglycaemia Study Group (IHSG), for diabetes specialists, primary care physicians, and specialist diabetes nurses involved in the treatment and management of people with diabetes.
Despite advances in treatment, hypoglycemia remains a prevalent complication of diabetes which is often overlooked. Newer insulins and technologies have the potential to reduce the risk of hypoglycemia and its complications. To achieve these benefits, they must be correctly integrated into an individualized treatment regimen, taking patient fears and choice into account.
This program aims to support clinicians in a time of rapidly changing treatment options, providing practical guidance in identifying and managing diabetic hypoglycemia.
Authored by Dr Wilmot, this activity focuses on the most effective way to monitor people with diabetes, particularly focusing on the use of CGM, and when and how treatment should be adapted to reduce the risk of hypoglycemia. Transcripts available in French, German, Italian and Spanish.
Professor Simon Heller introduces new learning activities to strengthen and complement the “Diabetic hypoglycemia: recognizing the under-recognized” program. These are specifically designed to benefit all healthcare professionals involved in the management of people with diabetes.
The new expert-led content includes:
- Interactive eLearning modules covering the appropriate introduction and monitoring of therapy to reduce the risk of hypoglycemia
- Case-focused webcast highlighting and discussing the different risk factors for hypoglycemia and how to manage these, where there is an opportunity to submit your own cases for discussion
