Hands On Webcast: 10/12/21: Downloading Data, Part 2: Optimizing Glycemic Management Based on Data from CGM, Insulin Pumps, and Hybrid Closed-Loop Systems
Overview

Join the American Diabetes Association on Tuesday, October 12th, at 3 p.m. EDT for a live, one-hour panel discussion that is the second in a two-part series about leveraging technology-enabled data to better manage diabetes. This session will focus on CGM, insulin pumps, and hybrid closed-loop systems. 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 latest in using CGM, insulin pumps, and hybrid closed-loop systems to improve care; the body of evidence around improved outcomes enabled by data from these technologies; and how to use newer glycemic metrics—such as time in range and glycemic variability—to make decisions related to diabetes care. Presenters will share five actionable tips for maximizing the use of these technologies 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.
