This CME-accredited Case-in-Point™ webinar is designed to address the needs of endocrinologists and other diabetes specialists. Drs. Daniel Einhorn, Serge A. Jabbour, Marc S. Sabatine, and Kumar Sharma will guide participants through a series of representative clinical case scenarios to ensure learners understand the pathophysiologic link between type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and common comorbidities like cardiovascular disease, chronic kidney disease, and heart failure. Faculty will also detail recently revised guidelines, updated trial data, and appropriate therapeutic selection, including sodium-glucose cotransporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitors, for patients with T2DM and common comorbidities.
The educational design of this series addresses the needs of endocrinologists and other diabetes specialists.
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better able to:
• Explain the pathophysiologic relationships between T2DM and cardiovascular disease, heart failure, and chronic kidney disease, including implications for treatment
• Compare the designs and results of large-scale renal and cardiovascular outcomes trials with SGLT2 inhibitors for T2DM
• Describe multidimensional efficacy and safety profiles and prescribing considerations for SGLT2 inhibitors in patients with T2DM
