Advanced Management of Diabetes
Online Interprofessional Certificate Program

Module 4
Diabetes in Youth


Improve your diabetes care skills by learning from the experts without the expense of going to a national conference.

The Advanced Management of Diabetes online CME and certificate program provides interprofessional learners with a foundation of knowledge to improve outcomes for their patients and their healthcare systems. Each self-paced module includes presentations and simulations by over 25 leading experts (from endocrinologists, physicians, nurse practitioners, pharmacists, psychologists, registered nurses, registered dietitians, and an exercise physiologist, to people with diabetes), covering the core competencies that healthcare practitioners from any discipline can integrate into their practice settings. The course videos and quizzes are accessible 24/7, so that you can learn at your own pace and within your schedule.

Designed for healthcare professionals from all disciplines who are interested in providing high quality diabetes care in the United States, including physicians, nurses, pharmacists, dietitians, health educators and others. Complete modules individually for CE credit or the entire course for CE credit and a certificate. The curriculum is designed to support all learners, and will be especially useful to those who are preparing to obtain or renew their Certified Diabetes Educator (CDE) and Board Certified - Advanced Diabetes Management (BC-ADM) exams.

  3. Identify the acute complications of diabetes and use preventive treatment strategies for: hypoglycemia, sick day management, and ketoacidosis.
  4.  Demonstrate current standards of practice for use of insulin pumps and continuous glucose monitors in youth with type 1 diabetes.
