Hypoglycemia Webinar

Posted 18 days ago by Carma Rhodes-Gates

Good evening everyone,

If you are interested in a webinar on hypoglycemia, JT Mathis, Regional Medical Affairs Director at Xeris Pharmaceuticals, has forwarded the information to me. I am posting the information below:

"Evolving the Paradigm in Severe Hypoglycemia Management" which will be presented by Davida F. Kruger, MSN, APN-BC, BC-ADM, Certified Nurse Practitioner from the Henry Ford Health System in Detroit, MI. The webinar will take place Wednesday, February 24, 2021 at 5:30 PM (CST).





1.       Consider the serious issue of severe hypoglycemia in diabetes, including its prevalence and impact on affected individuals and their glycemic management.

2.       Discuss how emerging standards of care for severe hypoglycemia can help overcome the limitations of earlier guidelines.

3.       Recognize administration challenges of existing emergency glucagon kits.

4.       Integrate the insights from today's presentation into an action plan for the identification and management of patients at risk of severe hypoglycemia.
