In this episode of Endocrine News, we explore type 1 diabetes, everything from diagnosis to treatment strategies, hypoglycemia, technology, and teleheath. Host Aaron Lohr talks with Irl Hirsch, MD, from the University of Washington, and Davida Kruger, NP, from the Henry Ford Health System. They co-chair the Endocrine Society’s 8th Annual Endocrine Fellows Type 1 Diabetes Care and Management Program.
Upon successful completion these educational initiatives, participants should be better able to:

  • Discuss the prevalence and progression of type 1 diabetes to recognize signs and differentially diagnose diabetes
  • Devise individualized treatment strategies that use new and emerging insulin and non-insulin therapies to manage individuals with type 1 diabetes with and without common comorbid conditions.
  • Incorporate diabetes technologies, including insulin pump therapy and continuous glucose monitoring, into treatment strategies for appropriate individuals with type 1 diabetes and evaluate data from those technologies.
  • Recognize and evaluate individuals with type 1 diabetes for signs of depression and distress using updated guidelines and practice tools.
  • Apply updated knowledge of treatments, practice guidelines, and clinical skills to improve care, long-term outcomes, and sick day management of individuals with type 1 diabetes.

AMA PRA Category 1 Credit
The Endocrine Society designates each activity in this course for a maximum of 0.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity. While offering CME credits noted above, this program is not intended to provide extensive training or certification in the field.

Please note that while other accrediting bodies accept AMA PRA Category 1 credit, we can only award and report this credit for MDs/DOs. For those outside of this accreditation, please complete the participation evaluation and use that certificate as proof of attendance to submit to your accrediting body.

Maintenance of Certification (MOC)
Successful completion of each CME activity in this course, which includes participation in the evaluation component, enables the participant to earn up to 0.5 points in the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program. Participants will earn MOC points equivalent to the amount of CME credits claimed for the activity. It is the CME activity provider's responsibility to submit participant completion information to ACCME for the purpose of granting ABIM MOC credit.
