This CME program will highlight treatment strategies for basal insulins to manage time-in-range and glucose variability to improve outcomes in patients with diabetes. The expert faculty, Dr. Neil S. Skolnik, will outline the importance of improving patients’ glucose to time-in-range, minimize glucose variability, and incorporate continuous glucose monitoring in patients with diabetes. Following, Dr. Skolnik will discuss how to distinguish between insulins and how to incorporate them into practice. To conclude, he will review how to tailor treatment plans with the interprofessional team and the activated patient with diabetes, thus improving patient outcomes.
