This helpful tool was developed as part of the comprehensive Clinical Advantage Bootcamp: Type 2 Diabetes Management Certificate for Nurse Practitioners CE program. Pharmacologic options for Type 2 diabetes continues to expand. Busy NPs need to stay up to date about the various drug classifications, doses, indications and side effects of the many Type 2 diabetes medications. This is an exciting time for diabetes management with many of the pharmacologic options providing more than one treatment benefit. This all-inclusive resource provides need to know information about non-insulin antihyperglycemic medications, insulin and glucagon.
This practical handout for the NP includes helpful information about the evaluation of patients with lipid abnormalities, risk assessment and treatment decision-making, and strategies for mitigating and managing side effects of statins. Resources are provided for managing the cost of medications.
This booklet provides essential information for clinicians who manage patients who are overweight or who are diagnosed with obesity.

This practical and informational handout for the NP provides an overview of the new nomenclature for what was formerly called non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and the spectrum of steatotic liver diseases (SLD). Learn about SLD risk stratification and the five cardiometabolic risk factors for metabolic dysfunction-associated steatotic liver disease (MASLD).
This resource-rich tool for the NP will guide you through screening and diagnosis of metabolic dysfunction-associated steatotic liver disease (MASLD), while providing a background of the pathophysiology, epidemiology and new nomenclature. Useful resources are provided that will assist you with patient education and management.
The Obesity Specialty Practice Group (SPG) offers a unique opportunity to interactively collaborate with colleagues who share interest or clinical expertise in obesity. 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 obesity.
