    • Overview

      Co-morbidities are common in patients with heart failure, with evidence showing over half of these patients suffer from an additional chronic disease state. One of those disease states is diabetes. The inter-relationship between heart failure and
      diabetes has been well documented with estimations of 20-40% of patients with heart failure also having diabetes. Diabetes is also an independent risk factor for developing heart failure and patients are up to two times more likely to develop heart failure than someone without diabetes. We developed this activity to address the potential gaps in pharmacist knowledge of the importance of guideline directed medical therapy and the impact on heart failure related outcomes and the expanded indications of previously approved glucose lowering therapies in patients with type 2 diabetes and established cardiovascular disease.
