Description

Many diabetes patients are not at their goals. This is made manifest by patients with A1cs above target despite therapy. There is confusion on when to start therapy, augment/adjust therapy, and discontinue therapy. The pharmacy community could benefit from a better understanding of:

• 1. Creating oral drug therapy plans for newly diagnosed patients with T2DM.
• 2. Augmenting oral drug therapy based on patient-specific factors.
• 3. Devising basal insulin drug therapy regimens for patients starting insulin for the first time.
• 4. Devising a plan to adjust insulin therapy based on patient-specific parameters.
• 5. Devising a plan to transition a patient to mixed insulin.
• 6. Proposing a treatment regimen for a patient transitioning to concentrated insulin.
• 7. Describing diabetes medications that received FDA approval in 2015.

Objectives

To increase pharmacist knowledge and comfort in the management of patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus. Including:
1. Identify appropriate oral drug therapy plans for newly diagnosed patients with type 2 diabetes.
2. Suggest oral drug therapy based on patient-specific factors.
3. Recognize appropriate basal insulin- and mixed insulin-based drug therapy regimens for patients starting insulin for the first time.
4. Describe diabetes medications that received FDA approval in 2015.
