Full course description

Accredited: 1 CEU. With one in three Canadians living with diabetes or prediabetes today, proactive engagement and monitoring by pharmacists can have a significant impact on clinical outcomes and systemic cost of disease management. The evolution of blood glucose technologies over the last 50 years has affected pharmacists’ ability to impact patients’ understanding of diabetes itself and inspire self-care behaviors. This session will review how to access and interpret results from these technologies in professional practice, and use case-based examples of how to communicate results effectively to motivate change.
