Artificial Pancreas Development

Release date: June 1, 2014
Expiration date: May 31, 2015
Estimated time to view the video: 49 Minutes


Course Description

49 minute video of a live presentation on the progress to date in the development of an artificial pancreas. This activity is part of a day-long conference offered for healthcare professionals by Bringing Science Home in Tampa, Florida.

The Need

This presentation goes step by step through the progress being made by research centers and commercial entities as they move toward developing an artificial pancreas. In order to communicate this progress, it is necessary to detail the work and challenges of several commercial entities, describe the unique components of these artificial pancreas systems being developed and discuss their pros and cons. The presentation has not been approved for CE credit. Approval for CE credit is by no means the only yardstick by which quality education is measured. Bringing Science Home (BSH) believes this presentation has great value, and should be made available to patients, professionals and providers alike. BSH therefore chooses to have it presented alongside the rest of these pace setting lectures, even though accreditation requirements related to commercial interests precludes it from receiving CE credit.

Psychosocial Issues in Diabetes

Release date: June 1, 2014
Expiration date: May 31, 2015
Estimated time to complete the activity: 50 Minutes
Course Description


Course Description

50-minute video of live presentation on the psychological issues of living day to day with diabetes, how that affects the individual’s ability to maintain appropriate control, and the role the healthcare team can take in supporting the individual with diabetes. This activity is part of a day-long conference offered for healthcare professionals by Bringing Science Home in Tampa, Florida.

The Need

In spite of the availability today of impressive tools for managing Type 1 Diabetes (T1D), national and international studies show that most individuals with diabetes tend to have fairly high A1C levels throughout their lifespan with relatively few achieving metabolic targets. Healthcare professionals frequently consider the cause patient centric; a failure to follow provider advice, a lack of understanding, or an unwillingness to change. But for the individual living with diabetes the issue is rarely motivation. Rather, day-to-day disease management is difficult and requires achieving low blood sugars without causing severe hypoglycemia. How does the individual with diabetes master this balancing act and still “have a life”? This activity looks at the psychological issues of living with T1D and the role of the professional in supporting them.

Target Audience

Physicians, Nurse Practitioners, PAs, Nurses, Licensed Clinical Social Workers, Licensed Marriage, Family Therapists, Licensed Mental Health Counselors, Registered Dietitians, Community Health Education Specialists, and other healthcare providers engaged in the care of the individual with diabetes

Learning Objectives (Apply to All Learners in Target Audience)

As a result of participating in this online activity, the learner should be able to:
• Describe the major psychological issues related to diabetes
• Discuss key strategies for enhancing patient engagement in diabetes

Talking About New Technology and Research With Your T1D Patient

Release date: June 1, 2014
Expiration date: May 31, 2015
Estimated time to complete the activity: 36 Minutes


Course Description

36 minute enduring materials video of a live presentation on successfully communicating with T1D patients about new technology and research. This activity is part of a day-long conference offered for healthcare professionals by Bringing Science Home in Tampa, Florida.

The Need

There is currently an impressive array of T1D research and technology that providers would like to see their patients embrace. New clinical research studies that might help the diabetic are not always welcomed by the patient. In technology, devices are available that include new generation insulin pumps, blue tooth enabled SMAG, continuous glucose monitoring devices, mobile APPs that facilitate contact between the patient and PCP, and gaming mobile management APPs. Unfortunately these innovations and research studies often excite providers more than the individuals for whom they are developed.

The provider needs to understand why patients are reticent to accept these innovations and learn how to have forthright and productive conversations with the individual with diabetes on what these innovations may or may not add to their quality of life.

Target Audience

Physicians, Nurse Practitioners, PAs, Nurses, Licensed Clinical Social Workers, Licensed Marriage, Family Therapists, Licensed Mental Health Counselors, Community Health Education Specialists, and other healthcare providers engaged in the care of the individual with diabetes

Learning Objectives (Apply to All Learners in Target Audience)

As a result of participating in this online activity, the learner should be able to:
• Discuss patient attitudes toward clinical research and new technology
• Describe key strategies for encouraging patients to participate in research trials and to embrace new technology
