Diabetes from the Perspective of the Cardiologist: An Evolving Paradigm


Einstein and Montefiore Logos

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

At the conclusion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Discuss the connections between the etiology and the pathophysiology of various components of the cardiometabolic syndrome and the development of cardiovascular disease in people with type 2 diabetes
  • Describe the rationale for evaluating the cardiovascular impact of antidiabetes medications, and key data from recent cardiovascular outcomes trials of antidiabetes medications
  • Discuss how antidiabetes medications with demonstrated cardiovascular benefits can be integrated into guideline-driven glycemic control programs for people with type 2 diabetes
  • Identify methods whereby cardiologists can spearhead coordination of care among various providers for a person with both cardiac disease and type 2 diabetes to optimize outcomes for both conditions
