This online educational program focuses on the latest data on mealtime insulin in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus. In this program, clinicians will address appropriate treatment intensification strategies in consideration of patient-related factors, the latest clinical data, and key parameters for monitoring clinical response to mealtime insulin. Through this program, clinicians will improve their level of comfort with initiating mealtime insulins to optimize glycemic outcomes, including in underserved populations. Innovative learning strategies will reinforce the latest best practices to support clinician and patient understanding of the latest strategies in glycemic management.


This educational activity is intended for U.S. primary care physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and Diabetes Care and Education Specialists (DCES), with emphasis on those who provide care to underserved communities and who have the greatest needs.


Upon the completion of this program, attendees should be able to:

  • Evaluate strategies for facilitating timely treatment intensification in patients with T2DM
  • Determine which patients are poised to benefit from the use of mealtime insulin
  • Select among mealtime insulin formulations based on their pharmacological profiles and patient needs
  • Apply measures such as time in range (TIR), postprandial glucose (PPG), and insulin dosing information to treatment decisions for patients with T2DM
