    • Overview

      Patients with diabetes are also much more likely to suffer from cardiovascular disease than those without diabetes. In fact, cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death associated with diabetes. Findings from several recent clinical trials highlight the limitations of focusing exclusively on glycemic treatment goals for type 2 diabetes (T2D) and emphasize the need for cardiovascular risk reduction as well. Pharmacists are often the medical professional that patients reach out to for guidance and explanation on new pharmaco-therapy and individualized treatment. This educational opportunity will give pharmacists an in depth look at the clinical evidence behind the changes and opportunities for individualized treatment of T2D and in particular those with higher CVD risk to improve patient outcomes.
