I recommend this course and required reading because it makes a good CPE program for dietitians wanting to be more informed about the various aspects of intensive diabetes management. It focuses not only on nutrition therapy for diabetes, but also the larger aspects of successful self-management dealing with monitoring, therapies, and continuous care.
