Pharmacists play an important role in the management of patients with diabetes. With access to data and methods for care coordination, they are critical to efforts to improve diabetes management. Pharmacists can help adopt ongoing, continual care of patients rather than episodic office visits, evaluate the role of newer agents in clinical practice, and advocate for treatment regimens that encourage adherence and persistence on the part of the patient in order to ensure optimal outcomes.
This educational program aims to increase the pharmacist’s understanding of diabetes pathophysiology, while providing a review of glucose regulation by the body by various organs and how they all affect disease progression. This webinar is the first of 2 webinars that will aim to provide full understanding of diabetes pathophysiology and a review of different treatment options that are available to address the various defects that lead to glucose imbalance.

The information in this presentation is intended for educational use and to stimulate professional discussion among colleagues. It should not be construed as legal advice. There is no way such a brief discussion of an issue or topic for educational or discussion purposes can adequately and fully address the multifaceted and often complex issues that arise in the course of professional practice. Moreover, statutes, regulations and court interpretations of the law can vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. It is always the best advice for a pharmacist to seek counsel from an attorney who can become thoroughly familiar with the intricacies of a specific situation and render advice in accordance with the full information.
