NP Tools and Resources

AANP-developed Resources to Support NPs in Treating Your Patients


Patient Education Tools and Resources

Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) Pocket Guide

This tool is a comprehensive guide highlighting what patients need to know about CGM devices for diabetes management. With diabetes technology advances on the rise, the goal is to help patients understand the features and benefits of the devices currently available, help support point of care conversations and help patients understand the benefits of these devices for diabetes management.

This tool was developed by a group of organizations, including AANP, through support from Abbott Diabetes Care Inc.


GLP-1 Receptor Agonists (RA) for Type 2 Diabetes Handout

This handout is designed to help patients track their symptoms, treatments, injection sites and blood sugar readings between visits with their health care provider. It can also serve as an appointment reminder and encourage patients to speak up about symptoms or ask questions about their care.

AANP developed and produced this educational tool through an independent medication educational grant from NovoNordisk.


Living With Type 2 Diabetes Flipchart

This, AANP’s most popular flipchart was created by expert NPs to support education of patients with Type 2 diabetes and comes with a two-sided document of information to give to the patients to take home.

AANP developed and produced this educational tool through support from Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals, Inc, and Eli Lilly and Company.


Insulin/GLP-1 RA Combination Medication Handout

Designed to inform patients about the side effects, dosage adjustment and administration of long-acting basal insulin combined with a GLP-1 RA, this handout also includes a worksheet for providers to fill out and give to patients to take home.

AANP developed and produced this educational tool through support from Sanofi US.


Diabetes Medication Patient Handout

Designed with the patient in mind, this simple yet effective tool offers basic information on diabetes medications, which is necessary for patients to make an informed decision regarding their therapeutic options.

AANP developed and produced this educational tool through support from Lilly and Sanofi US.
