Hypoglycemia is a prevalent and dangerous condition that can affect anyone with diabetes who is treated with insulin preparations or oral insulin secretagogues. Nurse practitioners (NPs) are very instrumental in the care of people with diabetes and need to be prepared to facilitate discussions with their patients about all the different aspects of hypoglycemia.
Join AANP for this free webinar that takes a deep dive into hypoglycemia in diabetes. Dr. Kathryn Kreider, and Debbie Hinnen are NP experts in diabetes care. They will discuss hypoglycemia prevention, preparation, identification and treatment in detail. Case studies will allow you to apply what you learn, and a live question-and-answer (Q&A) will provide the opportunity to ask questions of faculty.
This activity is supported by an independent educational grant from Xeris Pharmaceuticals, Inc. The webinar is available at no cost to all NPs, regardless of AANP membership status. In addition, a recorded version of this webinar will be available on-demand in the AANP CE Center until October 31, 2023.
Explain the importance of identifying hypoglycemia in your patients with diabetes.
