      I am not very comfortable with managing diabetes and heart failure. I review lifestyle dietary modifications for chronic disease management.
      I must review and study the medication more in depth.

      I am new to the diabetes education roll and so I do not feel very comfortable in managing diabetes and heart failure in my day to day practice. However, through exposure from client interactions, constant review and studying I am becoming more familiar with the medications available and how they can possibly benefit clients with diabetes. However, as mentioned previously, I like go through positive lifestyle modifications and SMART goals within chronic disease management.

      Most of my clinical background and experience is in cardiology and cardiac surgery, so I do feel pretty comfortable discussing HF management with my patients with diabetes. As I am new to my role in diabetes education, I now must consider the drug-drug interactions between SGLT2-i and loop diuretics as often, in my previous experience, SGLT2i are held during a patient’s acute care stay. The “Practical approach to SGLT2 inhibitors for treatment of cardiovascular disease” tool mentioned in this course is a great resource, and one I will use in my practice moving forward when considering these interactions.

      After reviewing this course, I feel more confident in managing Diabetes and Heart Failure. However, I need to continue to seek learning opportunities and review guidelines often. I hope to become more confident as I gain more experience.

      I am not as confident in discussing pharmacology with Clients related to their DM as I am with those diagnosed with CHF. Fortunately, I have access to a pharmacist in our organization and can request for a consult when needed.
