Facilitating Discussions With Your Patients With Diabetes: Moving Forward

Managing patients with a complex disease like diabetes requires frequent changes in treatment to help meet their goals. Therapeutic inertia can get in the way of treatment intensification. AANP, along with the American Diabetes Association (ADA), has created a resource document for nurse practitioners (NPs) who manage patients with diabetes that outlines crucial components of conversations to have about treatment intensification and provides resources to assist with breaking down the identified barriers.
