Insulin is an integral component of diabetes management, providing greater efficacy at lowering HbA1c compared to oral agents. However, average HbA1c levels in patients receiving insulin range from 7.9 to 9.3%, highlighting the need for clinician and patient education to promote proper use of this effective therapy. This Gather-ed educational experience will focus on identifying patient and clinician barriers to insulin initiation and titration and strategies to address these barriers, evaluating efficacy and safety data for insulin, and developing patient-specific plans for insulin therapy.
