Course Description

Diabetes poses a major healthcare challenge as the prevalence is rising and providers of all types are increasingly required to address control and the treatment of diabetes-related complications. Therapies for diabetes are broadening and newer technologies offer promise, but must also be used with care. The UCLA Annual Diabetes Symposium is a one-day CME program offering providers of varying backgrounds a chance to review optimal state-of-the-art patient care. Experts in the field and its associated complications will review current best practices, including updates in technology, new medications, treatment in the older populations and obesity and cardiovascular disease management.

Target Audience

The UCLA diabetes program has been designed for physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, certified diabetes educators, nurse educators, dietitians, pharmacists, and other healthcare practitioners whose practice includes care of patients with diabetes.

Disclosures

The FDA has issued a concept paper which classifies commercial support of scientific and educational programs as promotional unless it can be affirmed that the program is "truly independent" and free of commercial influence. In addition to independence, the FDA requires that nonpromotional, commercially supported education be objective, balanced, and scientifically rigorous. The policy further states that all potential conflicts of interest of the CME staff and faculty be fully disclosed to the program's participants. In addition, Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education policy now mandates that the provider adequately manages all identified potential conflicts of interest prior to the program. We at UCLA fully endorse the letter and spirit of these concepts.
