In this educational programme the role of GLP-1 ra in the management of patients with diabetes in cardiology practice will be discussed
This course consists of the following 3 lectures
- Diabetes & CVD: Time for a multifactorial approach - Prof. John E. Deanfield, MD, University College London, UK
- GLP-1 receptor agonists: The cardiovascular benefits beyond glucose control - Prof. Filip K. Knop, MD University of Copenhagen, Denmark
- Translating GLP-1 trial outcomes to cardiology practice: Which patients will benefit?- Prof. Lars Rydén, MD Karolinska Institute, Stockholm, Sweden
Educational objectives of this course are to:
- Understand the relation between T2DM & Cardiovascular Disease
- Identify the needs for novel approaches targeting T2DM in cardiovascular prevention
- Explore results from recent cardiovascular outcome trials (CVOT) in T2DM
- Discuss potential mechanisms and multifactorial effects of GLP-1 receptor agonists contributing to cardiovascular benefits
- Review results from recent GLP1 RA outcomes trials, such as LEADER on CV and microvascular outcomes.
- Discuss practical implications from recent CVOTs on treatment and prevention strategies in patients with CV risk and T2DM
- Prof. John E. Deanfield, MD - Professor of Cardiology - Director, National Centre for Cardiovascular Prevention and Outcomes, University College London, United Kingdom-
- Prof. Filip K. Knop, MD - consultant endocrinologist, professor of endocrinology and head of Clinical Metabolic Physiology at Steno Diabetes Center Copenhagen, University of Copenhagen, Denmark
