NP Tools and Resources

AANP-Developed Resources to Support NPs in Treating Your Patients

  • CKD and Anemia: What You Need to Know — This resource was designed to provide patients with basic information about CKD-associated anemia risk, symptoms, diagnosis and available medications. Clinicians are encouraged to review this tool with their patients, place it in patient care areas and provide copies to their patients with CKD who may be at risk for anemia.
    This educational tool is supported by an independent educational grant from GSK.

Medications for Type 2 Diabetes

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 tool is supported by independent medical educational grants from Mylan Inc., a Viatris Company, & Novo Nordisk Inc.

Patient Education Tools and Resources

Type 2 Diabetes and Kidney Health

This practical and informational handout has been created to facilitate shared decision-making conversations between the NP and their patients about type 2 diabetes (T2D) and chronic kidney disease (CKD). The checklist format enables users to easily keep track of information like recent kidney and diabetes lab tests, blood pressure readings, CKD stage and kidney-protective medications. In order to optimize kidney health, an individualized plan of care — incorporating lifestyle changes, treatments and referrals — is included.

This activity is supported by an independent medical educational grant from Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals, Inc. and Eli Lilly and Company.
