Reducing the Clinical and Economic Impact of Diabetes: Translating Evidence-Based Medicine into Clinical Practice

Activity description

This activity consists of recorded presentations from the "13th Annual Medical Director/Physician Leadership Forum" held in Austin, Texas, on May 15, 2019.

Effective measures for improving the quality of diabetes care are urgently needed to reduce the clinical and economic impact of diabetes. Practicing evidence-based medicine is essential to improving diabetes care and outcomes. Evidence-based practice entails familiarity with published research and the application of the most current findings to clinical practice. However, the amount of available information can easily overwhelm health care providers. This presentation will review the translation of evidence-based medicine to clinical practice in order to optimize diabetes care, and will discuss the economic impact that diabetes has on the individual and the health care system.
