2020 Endocrine Fellows Series: Type 1 Diabetes Care and Management

Due to a technical glitch tied to the pre- and post-quizzes that resulted in incorrect scoring, we have reset both quizzes to resolve this issue. Unfortunately we had to remove any quiz attempts prior to June 25, so the quizzes must be completed again to be marked as complete. We apologize for the inconvenience.

T1D care and management is more than monitoring A1c. Access timely education and resources to adjust insulin therapy, select and use technologies, and prevent common complications through this self-paced multi-module course, Endocrine Fellows Series: Type 1 Diabetes Care and Management.

Use of professional judgment: 
The educational content in this activity relates to basic principles of diagnosis and therapy and does not substitute for individual patient assessment based on the health care provider’s examination of the patient and consideration of laboratory data and other factors unique to the patient. Standards in medicine change as new data become available. 
Drugs and dosages:
When prescribing medications, the physician is advised to check the product information sheet accompanying each drug to verify conditions of use and to identify any changes in drug dosage schedule or contraindications.


The Endocrine Society has determined that disclosure of unlabeled/off-label or investigational use of commercial product(s) is informative for audiences and therefore requires this information to be disclosed to the learners at the beginning of the presentation. Uses of specific therapeutic agents, devices, and other products discussed in this educational activity may not be the same as those indicated in product labeling approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The Endocrine Society requires that any discussions of such “off-label” use be based on scientific research that conforms to generally accepted standards of experimental design, data collection, and data analysis. Before recommending or prescribing any therapeutic agent or device, learners should review the complete prescribing information, including indications, contraindications, warnings, precautions, and adverse events.


The Endocrine Society will record learner's personal information as provided on CME evaluations to allow for issuance and tracking of CME certificates. The Endocrine Society may also track aggregate responses to questions in activities and evaluations and use these data to inform the ongoing evaluation and improvement of its CME program.
