PROGRAM OVERVIEW

Diabetes affects multiple organs systems and is associated with life-threatening complications such as chronic kidney disease and cardiovascular (CV) disease, including heart failure. Individuals with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) are 2-to-4 times more likely to develop and die from CV disease than their healthy peers. The financial burden associated with T2DM is significant; more than 20% of health care dollars are spent treating diabetes or its complications. These observations suggest a need to develop treatment strategies to mitigate T2DM disease progression as well as reduce the CV disease burden. This educational activity is designed to improve the knowledge and competence among managed care professionals and HCDMs regarding the potential impact of newer T2DM therapies (e.g., DPP-4 inhibitors, GLP-1 receptor agonists, and SGLT-2 inhibitors) on CV and renal outcomes.

EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES

After completing the activity, participants should be better able to:
Track 1: The Impact of Newer T2DM Therapies and the Risk of Comorbidities
  • Discuss the relationship between diabetes, cardiovascular (CV) disease, heart failure (HF), and chronic kidney disease (CKD), and how newer therapies may reduce the risk of these outcomes
  • Review the recent and emerging cardiovascular outcome trial (CVOT) data
  • Integrate recent T2DM treatment guideline updates and recommendations with managed care algorithms for the management of comorbidities such as CV disease, HF, and CKD


Track 2: Managed Care Decision Making in an Era of New T2DM Therapies
  • Discuss the relationship between diabetes, cardiovascular (CV) disease, heart failure (HF), and chronic kidney disease (CKD), and how newer therapies may reduce the risk of these outcomes
  • Employ strategies that feature clinical and real-world evidence of the impact of newer agents on CV and renal outcomes
