A Case based program that takes a holistic approach to the management of CV risk in type 2 diabetes, through the application of recent data that is causing a paradigm shift in the treatment of diabetes.
Appreciate the increased risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) in patients with type 2 diabetes and assess cardiovascular (CV) risk in these patients .
Understand the “twin goals” of CV protection and good glycemic control in type 2 diabetes.
Explain the efficacy and safety of antihyperglycemic agents with demonstrated CV benefit and the risk reduction associated with these agents.
Implement Diabetes Canada’s (formerly the Canadian Diabetes Association’s) recent guideline update for secondary CVD prevention in patients with type 2 diabetes and understand the rationale for this update.
