Description

Participants will be introduced to the new Real Time Continuous Glucose Monitoring ( rt-CGM) system now available for purchase at pharmacies in Canada.  The components of the system will be reviewed, and we will compare to the more familiar, Intermittent Scanning Glucose Monitoring (Flash) system.  The unique characteristics of the rt-CGM will be highlighted and the advantages it can provide to patients with diabetes.  Third party reimbursement will be reviewed and tips for obtaining coverage for patients will be shared.
