This activity is an online medical education activity that aims to provide education to general practitioners (GPs) on the use of sodium glucose co-transporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitors in type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), with a particular emphasis on the use of these agents in patients with diabetic kidney disease and heart failure.
By the end of this activity, participants will be able to:
- Compare and contrast current clinical trial data for antidiabetic medications with respect to their impact on kidney disease and heart failure
- Select the appropriate class(es) of antidiabetic medication(s) for patients with kidney disease and heart failure and explain the rationale for medication choice
- Review local and international treatment guidelines for T2DM and discuss the potential for inequities of access to appropriate healthcare in New Zealand
- Identify when specialist referral is warranted for diabetes-associated comorbidities/complications
