The COVID-19 pandemic has drastically reduced people's ability to access care, especially for people with diabetes. Join us LIIVE in this Lilly-sponsored webinar, where we will focus on the process to initiate insulin in a virtual setting and why this is so important to achieve overall goals of care for people with diabetes. After the presentation, we will hear from Beverly Reed, CDCES and Principal Research Scientist at Lilly, for a Live Q&A. Please submit your questions in advance to get your questions answered live during the event.

This webinar is sponsored by Lilly USA, LLC.


After completing this activity, participants will be able to:
-- Identify why virtual initiation of insulin would be indicated and appropriate
-- Describe patient factors to assess when determining appropriateness of virtual insulin administration instruction
-- Implement a suggested process within the practice setting for virtual instruction to promote the outcome of patients competently and confidently self-administering insulin
