Pregnancy Complicated by Diabetes: Guiding Women through the Maze
November 4-5, 2022
This 26th annual event will again be “Live Virtual” (but you have an option to order the recroded sessions instead).
We are moving away from a research focus to a more practical coverage regarding working with families that experience
reproductive decisions, and periartum complicated by diabetes.
These familes are immersed into a maze of necessary care and they count on our knowledge and guidance
to find their way to optimal health under these complicated circumstances.
They are experiencing both potential physical and psychological stressors, and our health care system is a maze.
We need a practical approach to guidance and consideration of individual needs.
Components of treatment must take into consideration each family’s knowledge deficit(s);
teaching needs and styles of learning; demonstration needs; telecommunication ressources; extra testing, time, and expense;
needed life-style changes; motivation and mastery assessment and guidance.
The practitioner needs an understanding of their structure, good teamwork,
and up-to-date knowledge about care components.
Topics to be discussed in our conference:
Preconception Counseling, Testing an Diagnosis Criteria, Comorbidities, Glucose Monitoring, MNT, Medication Management,
Targeted glucose control, Use of insulin pump, Importance of sleep, Birth Care, Update on Covid in pregnancy, Newborn Care, and Post Partum follow up.
