Think you fully understand the differences between available glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonists (GLP-1 RAs) and their use in the management of Type 2 diabetes (T2D) and comorbidities? Clinicians may under-use GLP-1 RAs or not fully understand the differences between all the available GLP-1 RAs. As a result, unmet needs in T2D management persist, particularly in some ethnic and socioeconomic populations.
Test your knowledge about newest guideline recommendations, current evidence, and strategies to individualize treatment for patients with T2D using GLP-1 RAs by building your own case studies. This will help your patients achieve A1C targets, particularly those with comorbidities including obesity, cardiovascular disease, NAFLD/NASH, transplants, PCOS and more! Additionally, this will help you identify various social determinants of health (SDoH) that may be unrecognizable and help you direct your patients in changing important modifiable behaviors (like sleep, stress, smoking cessation, and alcohol use).
At any point in this Build Your Own Case Study, expert endocrinologists will shed light on current recommendations and evidence for GLP-1 RAs in the management of T2D along with obesity, cardiovascular diseases, and other comorbidities. Our expert faculty will also offer insights on individualizing treatment plans to help your patients reach their goals and reduce comorbidity risks.
Think you have all the tools you need to help your patients? If so, post-test and claiming credit will be a breeze!
