There are a number of diabetes resources below from the three insulin companies which will aid any virtual insulin starts by zoom/video apps that you can choose to use. They are in PDF format and suitable for sending as educational documents to your patients before, during or after the virtual consultation.
Please note there is a electronic request form for resources included from Sanofi. There is a section on Insulin initiation, titration and escalation from Dr Carl Peters in Auckland. Whilst this is one example of insulin start and titration, we advise that you follow the Waikato guidelines recommended by Waikato Diabetes Collaborative group as shown in this link.
There is also a great video you can share with your patients about getting started with NovoPen4. Send them this link for them to access it on YouTube: https://youtu.be/V-OoS9pIKeA
For your reference the video is below.
