and cons of APM participation can help with this
decision. This event will provide free and
objective information about what is required to
participate in an advanced APM, the potential
advantages of transitioning from MIPS to an APM,
and how to know if your practice is ready. The event will feature a panel of experts that understand
APMs, work regularly with clinicians and practices to help them succeed in MIPS, and that will

People with diabetes need to make lifestyle changes to control their glucose levels and avoid complications, but it’s not simply a matter of willpower. When they fall short, sometimes other factors in the environment are to blame. Yet people with diabetes, and even healthcare providers, may blame themselves and feel a sense of failure. But it doesn’t have to be that way!

Join us for a FREE webinar on Wednesday, September 19 from 1:00-2:30 p.m. Eastern Time to teach providers how to identify factors in the environment that can help people achieve lasting behavior change.

We’ll discuss ways to increase person-centered communication, self-efficacy, and supportive provider-patient relationships without judgment and blame. This webinar will also identify self-care behaviors for providers to help them address their own emotional needs
