Monitoring: From Measuring to Mastering Management

(Newly Updated!)

Diabetes is a disease of vigilant monitoring and ongoing daily decisions based on the cascade of numbers that ensue. Besides glucose results, there are blood pressure readings, lipid profiles, insulin doses, weight, exercise duration, and carbohydrates consumed. Monitoring is one of the seven AADE Self Care Behaviors and is an integral topic in the National Diabetes Standards Core Curriculum.

Monitoring: From Measuring to Mastering Management is a self-paced, online continuing education program that focuses on glucose monitoring.  Throughout three levels of training, all aspects of glucose monitoring will be covered, meeting the needs of entry level clinicians through experienced diabetes educators. You'll learn the latest guidelines and recommendations on self-monitoring of blood glucose (SMBG) and continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) from American Diabetes Association, American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists, and American College of Endocrinology, and you'll be equipped with the knowledge you need to help people with diabetes measure their glucose levels and know what to do with the results. 

Choose the most appropriate level for your immediate needs, or register for all three for in-depth education on glucose monitoring.

Available in an easily accessible online format, each level in this self-paced program includes:

  • Detailed multimedia lecture presentations
  • Interactive case studies and questions to reinforce learning
  • Printable handouts for note taking
  • Additional references and resources for continued learning

About Each Level:

Level 1  
Recommended for Entry Level Clinicians (non-diabetes educator nurses, dietitians, and pharmacists)

At the conclusion of this level, participants should be able to:

  • Identify the value of SMBG in diabetes care and self-management
  • Demonstrate matching the right blood glucose monitor to the individual based on key features
  • Determine effective SMBG education strategies to best equip individuals to know HOW to monitor to consistently achieve accurate results
  • State glycemic goals and general monitoring recommendations of major professional organizations

Level 2
Recommended for Clinicians and Diabetes Educators early in their career in working with individuals with diabetes

At the conclusion of this level, participants should be able to:

  • Identify strategies for breaking through common barriers to effective SMBG
  • List top SMBG learning needs identified by individuals with type 2 diabetes
  • Develop purposeful monitoring schedules based on therapy type, level of glycemic control, and individuals needs and interests so individuals know WHEN to monitor
  • Explain the complementary role of SMBG and A1C as assessment tools in diabetes care and management

Level 3
Recommended for Experienced Clinicians and Diabetes Educators

At the conclusion of this level, participants should be able to:

  • Apply the principles of pattern management in helping individuals become effective problem solvers in proactively working to prevent blood glucose excursions (help individuals know WHAT to do with the numbers)
  • Identify strategies for weaving glucose monitoring into diabetes self-management training and care as a tool for improving outcomes
  • Describe the emerging role of mobile technology as an aid in data collection, interpretation and its potential to provide sustained self-management support
