Diabetes standards of care are designed to provide clinicians with the components of diabetes care, general treatment goals, as well as tools to evaluate the quality of care.  The recommendations include screening, diagnostic and therapeutic actions that are known or believe to favorably affect health outcomes of people with diabetes.  In this Webinar, Juan Pablo Frias, MD, will review changes in the 2017 standards of care developed by the American Diabetes Association, and he will highlight the standards of care pertaining to acute and chronic complications of diabetes.

  • Review updates of 2017 standards of care for diabetes.
  • Learn about the acute and chronic complications associated with diabetes and associated treatment protocol.
  • Learn how to achieve individualized glycemic targets as a key factor in preventing and delaying progression of complications.
