Overview

The T2DM treatment paradigm has shifted significantly over the past few years with the emergence of new therapies designed to better address underlying pathophysiologic defects, while reducing untoward events and improving health outcomes. This rich array of emerging therapeutic options, alongside existing treatment approaches, can become overwhelming and potentially confusing as we look for the best clinical strategies to meet our patients’ needs. In this webcast, leading experts will discuss the latest evidence-based guideline recommendations for management of T2DM across the continuum of care, while lending practical insights on how to best tailor treatment based on a patient’s individual clinical presentation, risks, and needs. Discussion will focus on distinguishing new and emerging non-insulin therapies, including GLP-1 receptor agonists, in order to improve glycemic control, overcome clinical challenges, and mitigate cardiometabolic risks. 

Learning Objectives

  • Understand and appropriately individualize treatments based on evidence-based guideline recommendations across the continuum of care in patients with T2DM
  • Identify and address both patient and clinician barriers to using non-insulin injectable therapies in patients with T2DM in an effort to easily adopt therapy, increase medication adherence, and improve overall outcomes
  • Distinguish among available, newly approved, and emerging GLP-1 receptor agonists with regard to specific use, efficacy/safety and unmet needs, in order to optimally meet glycemic goals, overcome clinical challenges and mitigate cardiometabolic risks
