CVD AND TYPE 2 DIABETES: NAVIGATING THERAPEUTIC BOUNDARIES IN GLP-1 RA USE

This content is not intended for UK or US HCPs.

The purpose of this programme, 'CVD and Type 2 Diabetes: Navigating Therapeutic Boundaries in GLP-1 RA Use', is to equip cardiologists with the most up-to-date clinical data to facilitate the adoption of GLP-1 RAs. The programme will provide comprehensive education on the current issues related to CVD and GLP-1 RA treatment, ensuring appropriate implementation of guideline recommendations and creating a shift towards the optimal use of these agents as part of routine CV care.

Prof Tina Vilsbøll (Steno Diabetes Centre, Copenhagen, DK) leads proceedings, and is joined by Dr John Buse (University of North Carolina, School of Medicine, Chapel Hill, US), Dr Neha Pagidipati (Duke Clinical Research Institute, Durham, US), and Dr Linda G Mellbin (Karolinska Institute, Stockholm, SE) for insightful presentations and engaging discussions.

Target Audience

This programme is intended to educate:

  • Cardiologists
  • Endocrinologist/diabetologists
  • Nephrologists
  • GPs

Learning Objectives

The overall programme, 'CVD and Type 2 Diabetes: Navigating Therapeutic Boundaries in GLP-1RA Use', endeavours to best address the following learning objectives:

  • Describe the burden of ASCVD in type 2 diabetes
  • Assign risk of future CV events to individuals with type 2 diabetes
  • Identify appropriate patients for GLP-1 RA therapy based on clinical trial outcome data to reduce ASCVD risk
  • Recall trial data of anti-diabetes medications that reduce ASCVD risk
  • Recall the pleiotropic effects of GLP-1 RAs and how these may impact CV outcomes
  • Describe how early adoption of anti-diabetes therapies with proven CV benefit can positively influence QOL
  • Adopt anti-diabetic therapies with proven ASCVD benefit
