As insulin use continues to rise, so does the need for all members on the health team to provide timely and effective intervention, and counselling to their clients requiring insulin. This webinar will provide you with the tools needed to assist your client in maintaining or restoring optimal glucose control using insulin. You’ll learn about the main types of insulin, how to initiate injectable therapy, and incorporate established best practices and safety measures. We’ll also have some case studies for problem solving and to reinforce learning.
