Insulin has been associated with more medication errors than any other drug class and hospitalization rates for hypoglycemia now exceed those for hyperglycemia.  Pharmacists and pharmacy technicians in are on the front lines of the battle to improve medication safety among patients treated for diabetes.  This program will use a case based approach to make participants aware of medication errors and patient safety issues that arise in the treatment of diabetes.  Participants will explore strategies to identify and prevent errors related to insulin and other diabetes agents.

Injecting Change is an Insul-win

Significant advances have developed in the management of diabetes, including an increase in options of insulin therapies for our patients. The speakers will be discussing six of the most recent insulin therapies: Afrezza® (inhaled insulin), Toujeo® (insulin glargine U-300), Tresiba® (insulin degludec), Ryzodeg 70/30 (insulin degludec and insulin aspart), Basaglar® (insulin glargine) and FIAsp (ultra-rapid acting formulation of Novolog). Topics to be covered for each insulin include: efficacy/safety trials, PK/PD profiles, pen differences (units/pen, days stable unrefrigerated, max dose in a single injection, "hold" injection seconds). To conclude the session, participants will be asked to apply the information to a patient case where we will identify key methods of personalizing the insulin regimens to meet the patient’s individual routine.

Target Audience: All pharmacists
