Educational Presentation:

Injecting Change is an Insul-win
Speaker: Nicole Pezzino, PharmD, CDE, Assistant Professor, Wilkes University

Target Audience: All Pharmacists

CE Credit: 1 Contact Hour (0.1 CEU)

Program Objectives: At the completion of this activity, the participant will be able to:
1. Compare and contrast the new insulin therapies including their equivalent mechanisms
2. Describe a place in therapy for the new insulin therapies
3. Apply the information on new insulin therapies to a patient case

Description: 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.
