Cardiovascular Risk Reduction in T2DM: Applying Trial Data in Cardiology Practice
- CME / AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™
Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is a leading cause of death in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). The presence of diabetes also markedly increases the risk of 1-year adverse clinical outcomes (hospitalizations, mortality) in outpatients with heart failure. Multiple clinical trials have been undertaken to address critical issues in the management of CVD and T2DM. Trial findings have shown that the use of newer antihyperglycemic agents can reduce the rate of major cardiovascular events, including heart failure.
Cardiovascular Risk Reduction in T2DM: Applying Trial Data in Cardiology Practice will explore the burden of CVD in patients with T2DM, and outline the results from cardiovascular outcomes trials exploring the benefits and risks of antihyperglycemic agents in reducing CVD in patients with T2DM.
Welcome and Introduction
Recognize the Risk and Burden of CVD in Patients with T2DM
Cardiovascular Outcomes Trials: Benefits of Antihyperglycemic Agents on Reducing CVD
Applying the Data to Clinical Practice
The intended audience for this educational activity includes cardiologists who manage cardiovascular risk and existing CVD in patients with T2DM.
This program is designed to address ACGME and IOM competencies, including delivering patient-centered care, practicing evidence-based medicine, and focusing on quality improvement.
At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to:
- Recognize the burden of cardiovascular risk and established CVD in patients with T2DM
- Assess the benefits observed in cardiovascular outcomes trials demonstrating reductions in CVD risk in patients with T2DM, along with appropriate applications in clinical practice
This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the joint providership of USF Health and Rockpointe. USF Health is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
USF Health designates this enduring material for a maximum of 1.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
