About this course

The diabetes burden in Asia is increasing, with poor adherence to diabetes medications, especially insulin, being a significant contributing factor. The low adherence and persistence to insulin therapy has a substantial impact on clinical outcomes, revealing a pressing unmet need in diabetes management. This first of two e-learning modules gives an overview of the barriers to insulin initiation and recommended insulin regimens, delivery systems, and devices, and discuss ways to address these in clinical practice.

Learning outcomes

Upon completion of this module, you should be able to:
  • Understand the pharmacology, metabolism and role of insulin in diabetes management
  • Review adherence patterns and identify patient- and HCP-identified barriers to insulin therapy
  • Discuss various strategies to overcome the identified barriers around optimal insulin administration
  • Facilitate patient injection motivation and compliance via effective injection techniques

Topics covered

  • Overview of diabetes in Asia
  • Patient- and provider-identified barriers to insulin therapy
  • Strategies to overcome barriers to insulin therapy
  • Physiology of endogenous insulin
  • Types of insulin
