About the Program
SGLT2is and GLP1-RAs have proven to be effective in reducing cardiovascular risk and improving cardiometabolic health in several patient populations that are seen by cardiologists including ASCVD and HF with or without diabetes. This case-based program offers practical tips and tricks that can be used in daily practice and will help increase confidence with the initiation and use of the cardioprotective therapies.

Program Learning Objectives

  1. Recognize the importance of early initiation of cardioprotective therapies (SGLT2 inhibitors and GLP-1 receptor agonists) in patients with heart failure with reduced ejection fraction (with or without diabetes);
  2. Recognize the importance of early initiation of cardioprotective therapies (SGLT2 inhibitors and GLP-1 receptor agonists) in patients with atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease and diabetes;
  3. Initiate SGLT2 inhibitors and GLP-1 receptor agonists in appropriate patients using guideline-recommended strategies;
  4. Advise patients on the safe use of SGLT2 inhibitors and GLP-1 receptor agonists.

Accreditation:
This event is an Accredited Group Learning Activity (Section 1) as defined by the Maintenance of Certification Program of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada, approved by Continuing Professional Development, Temerty Faculty of Medicine, University of Toronto, for a maximum of 1.5 credits.
