Diabetes management is constantly evolving with new technology that allows patients to better screen glucose levels and gives pharmacists the ability to personalize the treatment plan for the patient. To learn more, the BC Pharmacy Association will be hosting a live webinar on June 16, 2020. Join our guest speaker Lori Berard, a nurse consultant, as she reviews the latest clinical evidence on flash glucose monitoring and how it fits in the continuum of care for diabetes management. Ms. Berard will discuss how community pharmacists can use these tools to help patients optimize glucose management.
At the end of the webinar, participants will be able to:
- Review the different methods to self-monitor glucose levels.
- Describe the difference between monitoring glucose levels using capillary blood versus interstitial fluid.
- Introduce how results from sensing technology can be used to make clinical decisions.
- Explain how pharmacists can use reports available with flash glucose monitoring to help patients optimize glucose management.
