Program Overview

Individualized blood-glucose monitoring plans are essential for people with diabetes. Learn to support people's diabetes self-care with quality SMBG (self-monitoring blood-glucose) plans. When people with diabetes optimize their use of SMBG, it helps them achieve blood glucose targets and self-care goals -- based on their preferences, medications, and SMBG data results.

Individualizing and Optimizing SMBG is a self-paced, 3-module online course designed to help you create personalized, structured blood glucose monitoring schedules and processes to support people with diabetes. Help individuals interpret the effects of food, physical activity, and medications on glycemic control, achieve target blood glucose levels, and prevent complications.

This program for diabetes educators has a strong focus on detailed case-study activities for participants to practice and learn decision-making strategies around SMBG.

This 6-hour long course has three (3) modules and is accredited for 6 CE.
