Post-Test on T2DM Back-to-Basics Special Report


Try these 10 questions and see what you've learned during this month's special report on the nuts-and-bolts of T2DM for PCPs.

This month’s Special Report has reviewed many of the basics of diagnosing and managing type 2 diabetes (T2DM), the care of which is provided largely by you and your primary care colleagues.

Specific installments have focused on clinical suspicion and screening at-risk patients; the tendency for clinical inertia when treating T2DM; the imperative to manage common comorbidities; teaching self-monitoring of blood glucose and using results to fine-tune treatment; and, recognizing when non-medical therapy and oral drugs are no longer sufficient to control hyperglycemia.

In the Introduction to the Special Report, you took a short pretest to determine what you already knew about the challenges of T2DM management.

Now is your chance to see the questions again in our post-test so you can gauge what you’ve learned, or been reminded about, in the management of T2DM from reading the T2DM Back-to-Basics for Primary Care Special Report sections.

Good luck!
