NEW Diabetes Technology Toolkit - Earn 3.0 CEs PREORDER for Aug 20 & 23 Premiere

$ 59.00 $ 69.00

As Diabetes Care and Education Specialists, we are expected to have expertise in diabetes technologies to improve person centered care and optimize outcomes.

Yet, when it comes to insulin pumps, sensors, and calculations many of us feel overwhelmed and unsure about diabetes technology management. Coach Beverly created this 2-part Technology Toolkit to provide you with critical information on Insulin Pumps, Calculations, and Continuous Glucose Monitors. 

If you want cutting edge information on diabetes technology, problem solving and using formula to determine appropriate insulin dosing, we highly recommend this toolkit.

Two Online Courses are included in this Technology Toolkit:

  • Tech 101 - Pumps and Sensors Update and Overview and 
  • Tech 102 - Insulin Pump Calculations: From Basal to Square Bolus

Tech 101 - Pumps & Sensors Update - 1.5 CEs
August 20, 2019 @ 11:30 a.m. PST

Join Coach Beverly for an overview of the complex world of insulin pumps and continuous glucose monitors. This webinar will discuss the features of available technologies, basic functions and how to integrate these into our practice. We will discuss the benefits, considerations and critical information to share with clients and providers. 

Objectives:
1. Discuss features of available professional and personal CGMs and insulin pumps.

  1. List components of CGMs and insulin pumps
  2. Describe appropriate candidates for insulin pump therapy
  3. List preparation for disasters and travel for pump / CGM wearers.

Tech 102 - Insulin Pump Calculations: From Basal to Square Bolus - 1.5 CEs
August 23, 2019 @ 11:30 a.m. PST

Determining basal and bolus rates for insulin pumps can seem overwhelming.  This course provides participants with a step-by-step approach to determine basal rates, bolus ratios and how to problem solve when blood glucose levels aren’t on target.  Included is a discussion on DKA recognition and an explanation of the safe use of technology in the hospital setting.

 Objectives:

  1. Describe critical teaching content before starting insulin pump therapy
  2. Discuss strategies to determine and fine-tune insulin pump basal rates.
  3. Discuss how to determine and fine tune bolus rates including coverage for carbs and hyperglycemia.
  4. State important safety measures to prevent hyperglycemic crises.
  5. List inpatient considerations for insulin pump therapy and CGMs

These courses are knowledge-based activities designed for individual or groups of diabetes educators, including RNs, RDs, Pharmacists, Nurse Practitioners, Clinical Nurse Specialists, Physician Assistants and other health care providers interested in enhancing their knowledge of insulin pumps, glucose sensors and using formulas to determine appropriate insulin dosing.

Instructor: Beverly Thomassian, RN, MPH, CDE, BC-ADM is a nationally recognized expert, working educator and Associate Clinical Professor at UCSF School of Nursing.
