3rd Cardio Diabetes Master Class – Asian Chapter

Exploring new risk management strategies for Asia: Focus on Hypertension & Diabetes


TheCardio Diabetes Master Class was a dynamic meeting with state of the art lectures, clinical debates and practical workshops. Participants are part of an ongoing educational initiative that support clinicians in their daily clinical management of cardiovascular risk and diabetes. As an educational service teaching slides  developed and presented by faculty are available to view and download for participants.
 

The educational objectives of the program were:

  • To summarise the epidemiology and pathophysiology of patients at increased cardiovascular risk and diabetes
  • To explore mechanisms and common pathways underlying the development of cardiovascular disease and diabetes
  • To review and discuss the importance of glucose management and the rationale for early intervention strategies in patients with diabetes
  • To discuss the role of anti-diabetic therapy, in particular the use of TZD’s, in a risk-based intervention strategy that targets glucose control and cardiovascular risk factors
  • To provide an expert perspective on the expanding role of RAS blockade in multiple organs in the treatment of patients at increased CV risk
  • To provide an expert perspective in the ongoing debate on the role of TZD’s in the treatment of patients with diabetes
  • To discuss current and future strategies for practical management and interventions to prevent cardiovascular events in multirisk patients
