This CME/CE program will provide clinicians with an update on treatment strategies for basal insulins to manage time-in-range and glucose variability to improve outcomes in patients with diabetes. The expert faculty will review the importance of the role of the diabetes care and education specialist to minimize glucose variability in patients on longer-acting insulins. Next, a clinical review of newer longer-acting insulins in patients with diabetes will be analyzed. Following, strategies to optimize treatment plans and how to educate the person with diabetes will be discussed. Upon completion of this activity, learners will be better equipped to treat and manage their patients with diabetes.
