WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

This activity is designed to meet the educational needs of managed care pharmacy directors, clinical pharmacists, quality directors, medical directors, pharmacy directors, specialty pharmacists, quality directors, care managers, registered nurses, and other managed care and payer organization professionals.

STATEMENT OF NEED / PROGRAM OVERVIEW

Prospective epidemiological and experimental studies have reported an association between suboptimal glycemic control as measured by an elevated glycated hemoglobin and both micro- and macrovascular complications. Individuals with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) have a 3-fold increase in cardiovascular mortality and a 2-fold increase in overall mortality compared to age-matched peers without T2DM. There is a clear need to develop therapeutic strategies to mitigate disease progression as well as reduce the cardiovascular disease burden.

Managed care pharmacists and other payer professionals require a thorough understanding of recent and emerging cardiovascular clinical trial evidence that can impact both clinical and economic outcomes for patients with T2DM. This symposium will enable plan decision-makers to more thoroughly evaluate T2DM agents under consideration for formulary inclusion as well as guide development of the plan T2DM benefit design and the T2DM treatment algorithm.

The educational format of The Managed Care Review Board® will feature a multi-specialty, multi-professional faculty that collaborate, under the leadership of an Activity Chair, on the review of the clinical data, current guidelines, and economic data of a class of therapeutics. Similar to a mock pharmacy and therapeutics committee format, the program will include time for peer-to-peer discussion and debate among the diverse group of faculty members and the audience.

EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES

At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to demonstrate improved ability to:
  • Recognize the rationale for cardiovascular outcome trials (CVOT) in T2D and review data from recent CVOT of anti-hyperglycemic agents
  • Examine alignment of managed care T2D treatment algorithms with recent CVOT trial data
  • Implement patient-centered strategies to minimize cardiovascular risk inpatients treated in a managed care setting
  • Discuss the potential impact of CVOT results on benefit design strategies
