The integration of real-time continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) systems and pump therapy has been an important milestone in the management of type 1 diabetes . The more recent incorporation of control algorithms has offered potential to further improve clinical outcomes. The  development of an algorithm that predicts impending hypoglycemia based on CGM and suspends basal insulin before the occurrence of hypoglycemia has been very helpful in managing the blood glucose excursions in Diabetes. In order to be able to successfully learn the use and set up of the CGM and pump, it is essential to realize the other factors that play a role in blood glucose excursions. Set over 2 days, the course will comprise of detailed subject matters which will include didactic content and opportunities for audience engagement
