Joslin Diabetes Center is a leader in pioneering approaches to continuing education for healthcare professionals. Joslin's CME and CE activities promote the highest standards of care, drawing on up-to-date medical literature as well as cutting-edge research conducted at Joslin to provide current, relevant, and evidence-based findings from Joslin faculty and other experts.
Our mission is to help providers offer their patients optimal management of diabetes and its related conditions, improved health outcomes, and enhanced quality of life. To that end, we provide continuing medical education for all members of the diabetes team - physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, dietitians, pharmacists, and other healthcare professionals- in a variety of formats, both live and online, to suit your schedule and preferred learning style.
Proven Success with Educational Outcomes
Joslin Diabetes Center has been at the forefront of measuring educational outcomes for our activities, based on the levels defined by Moore et al.1 We have been involved in several specific projects that measure the impact of our educational activities on clinician performance measures (Level 5) and patient outcomes measures (Level 6). Please click on the link below to read about one of these initiatives entitled Targeting Type 2 Diabetes: Achieving Glycemic and Cardiometabolic Goals. This initiative was supported by educational grants from GlaxoSmithKline LLC and Merck Sharpe and Dohme Corp.
