Overview:    This webinar will review the cardiovascular outcome trial data, evaluate the possible benefits and risks of therapy, and apply information to clinical practice.

Why should you Attend: Diabetes affects 30.3 million Americans, which is approximately 9.4% of the population. Uncontrolled diabetes results in multiple microvascular and macrovascular complications, such as increased risk of heart disease, heart attack and stroke. In 2015, diabetes remained the 7th leading cause of death in the United States. According to the American Diabetes Association and Centers for Disease Control, Atherosclerotic Cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) is the leading cause of morbidity and mortality for individuals with diabetes. ASCVD is a large contributor to the health care costs of diabetes.

Diabetes is an independent risk factor for cardiovascular disease, with many of those persons having elevated blood pressure and elevated lipid levels. Therefore, it is essential to evaluate the cardiovascular safety of medications used to treat diabetes. There are several newer oral options for diabetes therapy, such as Dipeptidyl peptidase-4 (DPP-4) inhibitors and Sodium glucose cotransporter-2 (SGLT2) inhibitors; and injectable agents such as Glucagon-Like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonists. Various cardiovascular outcome trials evaluating oral and injectable diabetes medications have recently been published.

Areas Covered in the Session:

Macrovascular and microvascular complications of uncontrolled diabetes
Review of cardiovascular outcome trials for oral diabetes medications
Review of cardiovascular outcome trials for injectable diabetes medications

Who Will Benefit:
Physicians
Diabetes Educators
Nurses
Pharmacists
