This CPD activity consists of 8 multiple-choice questions (MCQs) designed to test your knowledge on the recommendations for the safe use of insulin, the insulin types available for different patient groups, and patient education—you will then be prompted to reflect on your learning.
These MCQs written by Karen Bartha relate to her expert article, Safer insulin prescribing and ongoing management of individuals taking insulin in primary care, covering recommendations for the safe use of insulin, the different types of insulin indicated for different patient groups, and patient education.
On completion of this activity, you should be able to:
- explain how safety can be improved for patients taking insulin
- understand the different types of insulin available and how they should be used in different patient populations
- understand which oral hypoglycaemic agents can be continued alongside insulin.
