Educational Need

According to a new study published in JAMA, nearly half of U.S. adults have diabetes or prediabetes which puts them at high risk of getting type 2 diabetes. From 2011 to 2012, nearly 14 percent of adults had diagnosed or undiagnosed type 2 diabetes and about 38 percent had diagnosed or undiagnosed prediabetes. The American Medical Association (AMA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommend healthcare professionals screen and test their adult patients for prediabetes and refer patients with prediabetes to the National Diabetes Prevention Program. 

Learning Objectives

  4. Improve patient care provided by providers and staff through encouraging best practices.
  5. Project common understanding among a broad range of specialties which enhance a positive group culture.
