Program OVERVIEW


Despite the implementation of government quality-improvement programs involving payment incentives and penalties to motivate clinicians to provide guideline-driven care, substantial quality gaps in glycemic control remain. More than half of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) patients do not reach HbA1c target goals, and many patients do not maintain glycemic control.

The T2DM care team is large and includes not only the patient’s primary care provider, but also endocrinologists, diabetes educators, cardiologists, ophthalmologists, nurses, and several other care professionals. However, the patient must also be considered a member of the team, as patient behavior is the most important contributor to positive outcomes. Current T2DM care too often fails to leverage the positive impact of the active involvement of the patient. The multidisciplinary experts serving as faculty for this enduring activity will attempt to enhance coordination between patients and their caregivers and provide strategies for patient engagement to improve outcomes for T2DM patients.
