Inpatient Management Diabetes Course

The Inpatient Course is a self-paced, 4-module online course developed and facilitated by AADE that focuses on the art and science of caring for patients with hyperglycemia and/or diabetes in the hospital setting. Diabetes Educators are leaders in the development and implementation of hypo and hyperglycemia protocols, educating patients and staff, and evaluating patient outcomes.   

This course is accredited for continuing education credits for nurses, pharmacists and registered dietitians.  There is a final exam at the end of the course, with a mandatory passing rate of 70% for you to receive CE credit.

Modules include:

Module 1: Critical Care
The goal of this module is to discuss key research findings regarding the benefits of glycemic control in critical care and current recommendations for glycemic targets. Management strategies with a focus on identifying barriers and possible solutions will be reviewed.

Module 2: Non-Critical Care Setting: Insulin Therapy
The goal of this module is to look at current best practices for the management of patients with hyperglycemia and/or diabetes in the non-critical care setting.  Current guidelines and the role of insulin therapy will be discussed in detail.

Module 3: Meeting Glycemic Targets in Non-Critical Care Setting: Barriers & Possible Solutions
This module is a continuation of Module 2 with a focus on the efficacy and safety of current treatments and practices. The roles and responsibilities of each member of the interdisciplinary care team will be reviewed.

Module 4: Special Considerations in Acute Care
The goal of this module is to review best practices for the care of patients under special circumstances including: wearing their own insulin pump, receiving enteral feedings, taking steroids and having surgery. Smooth care transitions from hospital to home and guidelines to meet the Joint Commission’s Certification of Distinction for Inpatient Diabetes Care will be addressed.
