Abstract

This research project investigates the development of an
interactive visual learning tool for patients utilizing
continuous glucose monitoring. A beta product of this
interactive learning tool was developed to run real-life
scenarios that visualize how meal choices and medication
affect glucose trajectories in both healthy patients and
patients with type 2 diabetes. This learning tool is
intended to be used by the clinician to engage the
patient in an educational discussion about continuous
glucose monitoring. The tool may enhance a patient’s
understanding of graphic glucose trajectories so that they
may discover how their body reacts to different lifestyle
choices and learn to make better real-time decisions with
their own CGM data. The effectiveness of this beta
product was evaluated by 17 health professionals.
