ThinkGP Live Online - IN Control virtual workshop: INs and outs of INsulin INitiation and INtensification - Saturday 23 October

This is a live, online delivery of this workshop taking place on Saturday 23 October. You must be registered to participate in this course.


This year we celebrate the centenary of the modern era of diabetology which began with the discovery of insulin in 1921 – the first, and oldest of our anti-diabetes medications. However, far from being old and crusty, newer, second-generation insulin analogues represent cutting-edge diabetes research and pharmacotherapy.

This GP-led course, supported by diabetes specialists, will provide practical guidance on the role and implementation of insulin in the contemporary management of diabetes in the primary care space.

Learning outcomes:

  • Rationalise the use of insulin in the current T2D management landscape, using latest guidelines
  • Evaluate the role of newer, second-generation analogue insulins when individualising patient treatment
  • Implement simple models and tools to optimise insulin delivery
  • Conduct an effective patient consult when initiating, intensifying or switching insulins
  • Assess and consider the use of rapidly evolving technology in T2D management


Professional development: 40 RACGP CPD points / 5 ACRRM PDP hours

Who can attend: This course is only open to GPs.
