Endocrine Society’s 8th Annual “Endocrine Fellows: Type 1 Diabetes Care and Management”
Course Description

Type 1 Diabetes Care and Management is a comprehensive virtual conference for adult and pediatric endocrine fellows interested in type 1 diabetes (T1D). T1D is a lifelong and often complex condition affecting an estimated 1.6 million people in the United States alone. Individuals with T1D are at greater risk of severe hypoglycemia, DKA, vascular complications, and diminished QOL. The field of T1D management is rapidly changing, with a growing number of insulin formulations, non-insulin therapies, technologies, and data platforms are reshaping how T1D is managed. With newer therapeutic, technological, and management advances, comes a multitude of clinical options that can be confusing and complex. Adding to this complexity is the workforce shortage among endocrinologists. The result is fewer providers able to address the complex needs of patients with T1D. Endocrine Society’s T1D fellows’ conference addresses these skill and workforce gaps with comprehensive education on T1D care while strengthening the network of next generation endocrinologists. This high-quality education is extended to practicing endocrinologists and medical professionals who are also in need of this training as an online course.

This course will contain three companion components:

  • On-Demand Programs, Launches Saturday, March 20, 2021 – Includes 16 presentations from experts in the T1D field on topics including: Diagnosing and Understanding Risks of T1D; Principles in Insulin and Emerging Non-Insulin Therapies; Closing the Loop with Diabetes Technology; Screening, Preventing, and Treating Vascular Disease; Addressing Depression in T1D and Challenges across the Lifespan; Nutrition and Exercise in T1D Management; Caring for the Sick Patient at Home and in Emergency Situations; and a keynote presentation on Looking Back at 100 Years of Insulin from Jay Skyler, MD (University of Miami). Completion of the on-demand courses requires a pre-survey, a pre-test, recording, post-test, and evaluation to receive full credit.
  • T1D Day, Thursday, April 22, 2021 – A live, virtual event for fellows who have watched the recordings to interact with through a live presenter Q&A, professional development session, T1D abstracts, devices demos and an exclusive virtual lunch discussion with program co-chairs Irl B. Hirsch, MD and Davida F. Kruger, MSN, APN-BC, BC-ADM.
  • T1D Fellows Podcast, Launching in Summer 2021– A 30-minute podcast hosted by T1D experts Irl Hirsh and Davida Kruger discussing their approaches to managing patients with type 1 diabetes, with an emphasis on delivering optimal care in a virtual environment.

This education activity is supported by an independent medical educational grant from Abbott Diabetes Care, Inc., Dexcom, Inc., Helmsley Charitable Trust, Insulet Corporation, Lilly USA, Medtronic Diabetes, and Tandem Diabetes Care.

Target Audience
This continuing medical education activity should be of substantial interest to pediatric and adult endocrine fellows of substantial interest to pediatric and adult endocrine fellows and other health care providers that treat patients with type 1 diabetes.
Learning Objectives

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.
