This activity has been supported by independent educational grants from Novo Nordisk Inc.
This CME-accredited CME Snapshot™ four-part series is intended for endocrinologists, primary care providers (PCPs), and other health care providers involved in the identification, evaluation, and treatment of patients with T2DM. During these activities, two expert faculty will participate in a series of interactive discussions on recent evidence related to glucagon-like peptide 1 receptor agonists (GLP-1 RAs). The faculty will also review freely available patient- and caregiver directed educational resources that seek to improve shared decision-making.
These activities have been designed to meet the educational needs of endocrinologists, PCPs (e.g., internists, family physicians, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants), and other clinicians who manage patients with T2DM.
Upon completion of this activity, participants will be better able to do the following:
- Discuss the latest published evidence for current and emerging GLP-1 RAs as therapies for T2DM
- Tailor antihyperglycemic regimens for patients with T2DM using injectable noninsulin medications based on individualized goals, cardiovascular risks, and other clinical considerations
- Dialogue with patients with T2DM about injectable noninsulin antihyperglycemic options to promote shared clinical decision-making.
