This accredited learning module explores how to initiate injectable therapy in a patient with type 2 diabetes who remains above their glycaemic target despite taking dual or triple oral therapy. The activity works through 3 in-depth case-studies: a patient with uncomplicated T2D, a patient with ASCVD risk, and a patient with established ASCVD.
This education module focuses on a case study of an uncomplicated patient with type 2 diabetes, and the process of intensifying to first injectable therapy. Expert video commentary throughout the module helps step the participant through the decision cycle from the ADA/EASD consensus guidelines for T2D. This module also includes Australian recommendations for patients fasting during Ramadan.
