|Condition or disease|
We will determine whether attendees' self-reported confidence and use of insulin with persons with type 2 diabetes changes after they attend the CME program. Specifically, we will address the following questions:
Question 1. Clinical guidelines. Is insulin initiated earlier (at a lower A1C)?
Question 2. Decision-making. Does confidence in selecting a starting insulin regimen change? Does confidence in selecting a starting insulin dose change? Does confidence in adjusting insulin change? Does confidence in discussion nutrition guidelines change?
Question 3. Application. Do more patients start using insulin? Who usually selects starting dose? How is starting dose selected? How often is insulin adjusted?
Question 4. Resources. How available are protocols for insulin use? How available is adequate time to monitor insulin therapy? How available is staff to teach insulin injections? How available is staff to help adjust insulin?
