CPD activities – focus on diabetes

21 Jul 2016

Keep up to date with the latest evidence on second and third-line medicines for lowering blood glucose and their role in type 2 diabetes management with new CPD activities offered by NPS MedicineWise. Track the CPD points you earn using the AMA’s new online and mobile friendly CPD tracker at doctorportal Learning.

The new program, Type 2 diabetes: what’s next after metformin? offers a one-on-one or small group case based educational discussion to provide the latest information about available glucose-lowering medicines and their place in therapy, including the medicine combinations available. Participants will also be provided with an update on the latest guidelines and treatment algorithms for type 2 diabetes management. 

There is also a new online case study, customised for GPs, in which you will be able to receive instant feedback on your responses, compare your approach with your peers and read expert commentary provided by leading Australian GP Dr Roy Rasalam.

As part of the diabetes program there is a decision aid that health professionals can use with patients to help facilitate shared decision making about whether to start metformin. The decision aid compares potential benefits and harms of lifestyle changes alone versus metformin.
