Understanding Insulin Management

Green Clock Hours: 3.00

In the past, patients with diabetes typically received one or two daily fixed insulin in doses that only physicians understood and adjusted. Current practice, though, has transitioned to helping patients proactively replicate the pancreas’ role in blood glucose control. This knowledge empowers the person with diabetes to become an active participant in insulin management based on their existing lifestyle and preferences. Healthcare providers are now increasingly involved in teaching patients to control diabetes through skillful insulin management.

The goal of this course is to educate nurses and dietitians about the principles of insulin therapy and dosage adjustment.
