Basal insulin remains one of the most effective treatments for glycemic control in type 2 diabetes. However, as many patients and healthcare providers can confirm, getting started with this treatment may not seem easy. This program will allow participants to learn simple, practical steps for starting patients on basal insulin therapy as per the 2018 Diabetes Canada clinical practice guidelines, with an emphasis on the latest treatment options. Participants will also have opportunities to practice incorporating these steps into clinical practice though patient case discussions.
• Recognize when a patient with type 2 diabetes is an appropriate candidate to initiate insulin therapy
• Apply key takeaways from the 2018 Diabetes Canada Clinical Practice Guidelines (CPGs) to clinical practice to successfully start basal insulin, promote patient self-titration, and conduct effective follow-up
• Discuss individualization of treatment through analysis of patient and insulin characteristics as per the 2018 Diabetes Canada CPGs
