Overcoming Therapeutic Inertia: What You Need to Know On Demand
Overcoming Therapeutic Inertia: What You Need to Know On Demand

During this recorded webinar our presenters discuss the latest research on the impact of therapeutic inertia on diabetes care. They then take a look inside ADA’s multi-year Overcoming Therapeutic Inertia (OTI) initiative to help you effectively bust through inertia in clinical practice. Ushering in a paradigm shift in the care of type 2 diabetes, the OTI initiative aims to advance the latest thought-leadership, resources, and tools in overcoming therapeutic inertia to help primary care clinicians more effectively partner with their patients with diabetes to help them live longer healthier lives. This webinar culminates with a case study reviewing what might be contributing to therapeutic inertia in your practice with explicit recommendations addressing it quickly.
