"This was an excellent, well-organized succinct presentation regarding disparities and resulting gaps in treatment/care and delivery of service for many ethnic/racial  pts.  Your lecture was greatly enhanced by your experience and expertise  as a President and Chief Executive Officer of the National Hispanic Medical Association.  Plus, I believe that you can influence the community you serve as a Latino Physician.  As well as, your connection and influence in promoting the necessity for PCP to become more cultural cognizant of culture and how it plays a role in the pt seeking treatment and remaining adherence to TX.  In addition, your emphasis and focus regarding the education and research in dealing with the gaps in care with the Hispanic Medical Association. 

It is also important that we as health care professionals keep up-to-date on our continuing education and become culturally cognizant of the differences in other cultures regard seeking care and selecting a a PCP.  In order to be prepared to treat our pts to the best of our ability we need to be culturally aware of the pt's understanding.  We need to have access to information concerning medical diseases/concerns related to their ethnicity/country. 

Thankfully, today with the Internet and the wealth of other medical web-sites, obtaining current information simply @ our fingertips.  Yes, indeed, we are blessed to have  QuantiMD and other medical websites to keep current and have CME accessible to assist us with this task.       

 

Again, this was an extremely important topic on multiethnic diversity and issues concerns their health care.

 Thank You!

"This was an excellent, well-organized succinct presentation regarding cases on insulin administration and the treatment and management of Diabetes.  Your lecture was greatly enhanced by your experience and expertise as a physician and professor in endocrinology, nutrition and  family medicine.  Great information, related to the role of Basal and Prandial insulin administration. Excellent tables with in depth rationales and questions regarding the case histories presented.  Actually, I am finally starting to understand the format of QuantiaMD and how to navigate around the site and how to obtain my credit and certificates.

I request that pts who are not @ HbA1c goal to keep a log of their blood glucose level.  They are asked to check ac. breakfast and evening meals with @ least two hours of no food before PM check of glucose levels.  A calendar is provided to the pts. for their convenience.  Nevertheless,  these same pts. can't seem remember to even bring their glucose monitors, logs/calendars to their appointments which can be challenging to judge increase in units based on the pt's memory of what their levels were last noc or this AM.  I just have to use their current lab values GLU and AIC levels.  Any suggestions?

Again, very informative with wonderful useful tips related to the care and treatment of pts with DM.  First-rate case presentations/tables and questions.  I learned a lot of information related to correction dose, stacking, pre-determined algoithms, insulin on-board and fine tuning.  Great!

Thanks,

Valerie"
