In this recording, we will describe the clinical indications and the benefits of diabetes technology (e.g., insulin pumps and CGM) in the management of type 1 and type 2 diabetes. We will also discuss differences in diabetes technology used in certain populations with diabetes and the potential drivers of these differences. Lastly, we will discuss approaches to promote more equitable use of diabetes technology across all populations with diabetes.
Upon completion of this activity, learners will be able to recognize:
  1. The existence of disparities in insulin pump and CGM use affecting racial/ethnic minorities and those of lower socioeconomic status with type 1 diabetes
  2. Clinical indications for technology use in patients with type 1 and type 2 diabetes
  3. Patient, provider and system-level barriers that contribute to existing disparities in diabetes care and identify approaches to address them.
