Purpose

Diabetes is a condition seen frequently within the primary care office, yet, it is becoming increasingly complex to manage. Within the Intermountain Medical Group, diabetes is in the top five diagnoses as to why patients come to see their primary care provider. Both HEDIS and STARS measures contain diabetes quality measures in rating quality outcomes delivered by our system. In treating this condition providers have many options as to what medications to use, where to refer for education and how to manage complications, but all are constantly changing. With these thoughts in mind, the Diabetes Development Team and the Primary Care Clinical Program were very interested in providing a learning event to help providers know how to best care for this patient population.​

Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to

  • ​Employ new guideline updates from both the ADA and the AACE
  • Select medications to allow for individualization of patient clinical outcomes based upon important recent studies
  • Utilize current technology in glucose monitoring and in-office retinal photography to optimize the care of patients with diabetes
  • Integrate nutrition, exercise, and bariatric surgery (as appropriate) in this population to assure long tern successful management
  • Implement new research findings into clinical practice by participating in case studies regarding initial management of the patient with Type 2 diabetes, intensifying therapy and managing complications

Target Audience

Primary care providers (including internal medicine and family practice), Medical Group, affiliates, and APCs.​​
