This is one module of the T2D injectables series of education, which is also available as the 5-hour Accredited CPD Activity Rethinking first injectable therapies in type 2 diabetes: A practical approach.

In this education module, the participant will work through a case study of a type 2 diabetes patient with ASCVD risk factors. The case study uses the decision cycle from the ADA/EASD consensus guidelines for T2D, and features expert video commentary. The module also discusses patient-related concerns leading to clinical inertia, including useful management decisions when faced with this issue.

On completion of this education activity participants will be able to:

  • Apply principles of patient-centred glycaemic management in type 2 diabetes to help choose a suitable first injectable therapy for a patient with uncontrolled type 2 diabetes and with a high risk of developing atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease.
  • Outline Australian guidelines for managing ASCVD risk in type 2 diabetes.
  • Consider how ASCVD risk influences the choice of first injectable therapy in type 2 diabetes and compare clinical effects of GLP-1 agents versus insulin in patients with high risk of ASCVD.
  • Recognise patient factors associated with therapeutic inertia and delayed treatment intensification in type 2 diabetes and identify strategies for addressing these factors.

This activity is sponsored by Eli Lilly Australia.
