Master strategies to overcome therapeutic inertia in the care of people with diabetes 

Therapeutic inertia is the failure to advance or deintensify the treatment regimen when a patient’s therapeutic goals are not met. Earlier achievement of glycemic control is critical for improving outcomes for patients with diabetes. There are simple things you can do right now to more rapidly optimize treatment and to remove barriers to care plan adherence – both essential to busting therapeutic inertia.

The ADA's Overcoming Therapeutic Inertia (OTI) CE Certificate program is designed to empower clinicians caring for people with diabetes with knowledge and strategies to be a barrier buster. The OTI Certificate bundle allows clinicians to access all OTI modules at a discounted price in addition to the following exclusive benefits:

  • A one-year ADA professional membership (new members only)
  • Access to our case-based self-assessment program: Optimize the Diabetes Patient Journey​
  • 3 Exclusive Live Events
While the value of the complete Overcoming Therapeutic Inertia CE Certificate Program is $325, we are offering it at $125 for nonmembers, and $75 for current ADA members.
