Health Care Quality Improvement & Education in Diabetes Management:

Overcoming Clinical Inertia to Achieve Glycemic Goals

Overview

In collaboration with the American Diabetes Association, we invite you to join your colleagues and thought leaders from the ADA and Thomas Jefferson University in this 3-part CME meeting series to improve the quality of care delivered to diabetic patients in Philadelphia. This free, interactive CME activity is intended for practicing clinicians who manage patients with diabetes and will guide them through a quality improvement process using actual data from Jefferson clinics.

Together, we will explore and implement practical solutions toward overcoming the many challenges to providing quality diabetes care by:

  • Reviewing data on hundreds of patients with Type 2 diabetes seen at Thomas Jefferson University
  • Discussing barriers and gaps to achieving glycemic targets, including insulin initiation in appropriate patients
  • Identifying practical solutions to address these challenges
  • Engaging our patients with comprehensive patient education from the ADA

Complimentary breakfast will be served during the workshop.
