Activity Preview

The use of continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) in people with diabetes is on the rise given the large impact this technology can have on improving care and outcomes in people with diabetes. As key members of the diabetes management team, pharmacists can play an important role in educating people with diabetes about CGM, interpreting CGM data, and making evidence-based therapeutic recommendations based on CGM data. This accredited learning activity will provide an update on current CGM technologies and offer discussions related to CGM data interpretation, patient education, and reimbursement and insurance coverage considerations.

Learning Objectives

At the completion of this knowledge-based activity, pharmacists will be able to:

  • Discuss the clinical value of CGM for people living with diabetes.
  • Identify strategies on how to communicate with and educate people with diabetes about CGM to make informed self-management decisions.
  • Describe the reimbursement and insurance coverage landscape for CGM and identify available resources.

Activity type: Knowledge-based
