The AANP CE Center offers a wide variety of continuing education (CE) activities for nurse practitioners (NPs). Members of the American Association of Nurse Practitioners® (AANP) get more, including access to many free activities and significantly discounted rates on others. The activities are updated frequently, and more than a dozen endocrinology-related options are currently available.
Find evidence-based articles, up-to-date guidelines and other resources about endocrinology, particularly diabetes, at this resource center, brought to you by the Journal of the American Association of Nurse Practitioners (JAANP).
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 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.
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’s most popular flipchart was created by expert NPs to support the education of patients with Type 2 diabetes and comes with a two-sided document of information to give to the patients to take home.
This complimentary patient handout is designed to support NPs as they engage in discussions about hypoglycemia with their patients who are living with diabetes. The handout provides important information about hypoglycemia symptoms, strategies for prevention and treatment.
The Endocrinology Specialty Practice Group (SPG) offers a unique opportunity to interactively collaborate with colleagues who share an interest or clinical expertise in endocrinology. As an SPG member, you’ll have access to a cutting-edge, online forum where you can engage in discussions, document sharing and knowledge exchange with fellow NPs. Come learn, share and help progress the development of theory and practice in endocrinology.
There are many resources available for both patients and providers and we have listed some of them below for your convenience. The inclusion of these links does not imply AANP endorsement.
The American Diabetes Association (ADA) has partnered with AANP, along with other select associations, to produce a panel-style webinar about utilizing a team-based approach to overcome therapeutic inertia in the management of the person with Type 2 diabetes. The webinar was designed based on the results of the metanalysis found here. Overcoming Therapeutic Inertia, an initiative from the American Diabetes Association, is supported by strategic sponsors AstraZeneca and Sanofi US Services, Inc., and supporting sponsors Merck and Novo Nordisk, Inc.
