Overwhelmed? What to Do When Patients (or Providers) Experience Diabetes Device Burnout

Join the American Diabetes Association on Tuesday, December 14th, at 3 p.m. EDT for a live, one-hour panel discussion about diabetes device burnout. The session is a part of the "Hands On: Tips to Improve Diabetes Care" webinar series available exclusively to ADA members and offering CE credit.


In this webinar, speakers will discuss the potential downsides of diabetes device use, such as “alarm fatigue” and the development of distress and anxiety. Presenters will share five actionable tips for helping patients cope with these issues while maintaining glycemic control before the webinar concludes with a live Q&A session.


The “Hands On: Tips to Improve Diabetes Care” series is presented by ADA’s Behavioral Medicine & Psychology, Diabetes in Primary Care, and Diabetes Technology Interest Groups through the generous support of the Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust.
