CE hours: 2
Designed for: Nurse Practitioners, Nurses, and Students.

Registration:
Nurses: $40

Three of the eight classes of oral antidiabetic agents, and both classes of non-insulin injectable agents, were introduced to the United States market within the past sixteen years. The last new class of oral antidiabetic agents was introduced in 2014. The first oral form of a formerly non-insulin-injectable-only agent was introduced in 2019. Some of the new classes work through the enhancement of incretin. The study of these new classes, and their mechanisms of action, were not part of the prelicensure curriculum for any nurse who graduated prior to 2005.

Presented By: Marilee Aufdenkamp, MS, RN

Objectives

  • Describe pharmacodynamics, indications, and nursing considerations  for the various insulin groups
  • Describe the physiology of incretin relative to blood sugar control
  • Apply knowledge of the mechanism of action, indication, and nursing implications for the two classes of non-insulin injectable agents in planning nursing care for clients
