Managing the Full Spectrum of Cardiovascular Risk Factors:
A Closer Look at GLP-1 Agonists
.25 hours per video activity/1 hour for entire four-video series
December 18, 2012
The intended audience for the activities is family physicians and other health care professionals involved in the treatment of patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus.
Primary care physicians are at the front line in the management of type 2 diabetes, and must therefore be aware of emerging therapies for this disease. During this four-video series, leading clinicians will review the efficacy and safety of available glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) agonists, namely exenatide, liraglutide, and exenatide extended-release. Special attention will be given to the potential cardiometabolic benefits of these agents. These experts will also review the indications for the use of these agents in combination with insulin. Factors that may improve treatment adherence, such as the use of a pen and the lower frequency of injections with the extended-release formulation, will be evaluated.
