Getting Personal with Diabetes Care

Description

We have a diverse selection of pharmacotherapy options for blood glucose management.  Which one should people with diabetes choose? That’s a case-by-case decision—all depending on the individual. In this session, find out how and why we’re saying goodbye to algorithms and ushering in personalized approaches to help people with diabetes reach their glycemic goals. 

This session is part of the Trending Topics in Ambulatory Care series and  provides a robust preparatory curriculum for the high-level pharmacy professional planning to take the BCACP examination or for those seeking BCACP recertification credit.
