Joslin Diabetes Center is a leader in 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.
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 here 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.

Current Enduring Activities
Data supporting the use of GLP-1 receptor agonists in combination with basal insulin demonstrates the value of this treatment approach. This activity will provide learners with an update on data supporting combination therapy. It will empower diabetes specialty clinicians to more effectively identify people for whom this combination therapy would be indicated based on an assessment of their pathophysiology. Finally, it will highlight strategies to overcome barriers to injection therapy, and facilitate coordinated care with primary care providers.
This activity is supported by an educational grant from sanofi-aventis U.S. and is offered through our partner myCME. Expiration date: March 11, 2017.
