Joslin Diabetes Center is a leader in pioneering approaches to continuing education for healthcare professionals. Joslin's CME and CE activities promote the highest standards of care, drawing on up-to-date medical literature as well as cutting-edge research conducted at Joslin to provide current, relevant, and evidence-based findings from Joslin faculty and other experts.
Our mission is to help providers offer their patients optimal management of diabetes and its related conditions, improved health outcomes, and enhanced quality of life. To that end, we provide continuing medical education for all members of the diabetes team - physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, dietitians, pharmacists, and other healthcare professionals- in a variety of formats, both live and online, to suit your schedule and preferred learning style.
Upcoming Joslin Symposia
Management of Type 2 Diabetes in People with Renal Impairment:
Monday, May 20, 2013
Hilton Short Hills Hotel
41 John F Kennedy Pkwy
Short Hills, NJ
Registration: 6:00 – 6:45 PM
Forum: 6:45 – 9:00 PM
Early detection of renal dysfunction has the potential to slow or prevent its progression through early intervention, but this common comorbidity of type 2 diabetes is a challenge for many clinicians to detect and manage. This must-attend symposium will develop primary care clinicians’ skills in caring for patients with both conditions, highlighting methods of optimizing glycemic control in patients with renal dysfunction. Participants will work through a case vignette designed to enhance their clinical understanding and build practical skills for assessing renal function and initiating therapy while concurrently adapting diabetes treatment. After the symposium, follow-up learning activities and practice support will be available for participants through the Joslin Professional Education Continuum (JPEC™) platform.

Joslin Diabetes Forum 2013:
The Impact of Comorbidities on Glucose Control

People with diabetes often have comorbidities or concurrent clinical issues that affect the design and implementation of a glycemic control program. Primary care clinicians oversee the management of most patients who have diabetes, and are often the ones who must balance the need for glycemic control with adaptations of care necessitated by the presence of confounding comorbid conditions. For that reason, the Joslin Diabetes Forum 2013 will focus on the clinical overlap that occurs when glucose control programs are designed for people who have confounding clinical issues. Sessions will address the need for treatment adaptation for confounding clinical issues such as older age, obesity, reduced renal function, cardiovascular disease, or elevated liver function tests. The goal of this year’s Forum is to help clinicians learn how to adapt basic glycemic control programs to safely achieve glycemic goals for their patients.
Psychoses, Bipolar Disorders, and Cardiometabolic Risk:
Office Systems for Assessment and Treatment
Improve your confidence and ability to screen, monitor, and appropriately treat metabolic abnormalities in psychiatric patients.
Tuesday, June 25, 2013
Hyatt Regency O’Hare Hotel
9300 Bryn Mawr Avenue
Registration: 5:30 – 6:00 PM
Forum: 6:00 – 8:45 PM
This symposium will teach you how to effectively screen patients with psychiatric and mood disorders for cardiometabolic risk factors and how to monitor patients on antipsychotics for increased risk, as well as how your clinical and office staff can help you identify and monitor patients at risk. You will also learn about effective interventions to limit metabolic risk among people with psychotic disorders and how to office systems can help you efficiently prevent, identify, and treat cardiometabolic risk factors or coordinate such care with your patients’ medical providers.

This annual Continuing Medical Education (CME) course is the longest-running academic CME course in diabetes in the United States, and possibly the world. Initiated more than century ago by Elliott P. Joslin, MD, in conjunction with Harvard Medical School, this course has evolved with the knowledge of diabetes practice and research, as well as with the changing continuing medical education needs of the medical profession, including a greater focus on clinically relevant education for primary care providers.
Don’t miss this opportunity to learn from and interact with Harvard faculty at the forefront of recent advances emanating from basic and clinical research in diabetes and thyroid disease!
Current Enduring Activities
In November 2010, over 200 primary care providers met for two days in Boston to hear from national experts on the latest developments in diabetes treatment, insulin management, cardiovascular risk reduction, and other topics relevant to primary care providers and their patients.
In September 2010, over 100 primary care providers, cardiologists, and others gathered in Boston to hear from national experts on the latest developments in preventive and therapeutic interventions for the cardiometabolic syndrome, with the goal of reducing eventual morbidity and mortality in their patients.
These video/slide Web casts are speaker presentations recorded at the conference.
