Expanding focus for cardiologists: The patient with diabetes and cardiovascular outcomes
In this educational program, the role of novel diabetes treatment approaches in the prevention of CVD in patients with T2DM is discussed in three parts.
This course consists of 3 lectures:
- The cardiology challenge to manage diabetes in cardiovascular risk reduction - Nikolaus Marx, MD - Aachen, Germany
- Cardiovascular outcomes & atherosclerosis: How do GLP-1RA provide benefits? - Jorge Plutzky, MD - Boston, MA, USA
- Changing paradigm in prediabetes and CVD: Potential for new concepts and new tools - John E Deanfield, MD - London, United Kingdom
After watching three videos on the patient with diabetes and cardiovascular outcomes, the learner should be able 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
- Discuss practical implications from recent CVOTs on treatment and prevention strategies in patients with CV risk and T2DM.
- Nikolaus Marx, MD, Professor of Medicine / Cardiology, Head of Department of Internal Medicine I, Cardiology, Angiology, and Intensive Care Medicine, University Hospital Aachen, Germany.
- Jorge Plutzky, MD, cardiologist in the Brigham and Women's Hospital and Associate Prof at the Harvard Medical School in Boston, MA, USA.
- John E. Deanfield, MD, Professor of Cardiology, University College London, United Kingdom.
