Expiry Date


Patients with diabetes will many times have multiple comorbid conditions that will require each specialist to collaborate to prioritize the care. Endocrinologists, cardiologists, and nephrologists must collaborate with each other and primary care clinicians to ensure that continuity of diabetes care is maintained with all these patients. This program will review the management of a patient case with glycemic, cardiovascular, and renal issues.

This program has received an unrestricted educational grant or in-kind support from Novo Nordisk A/S.

This activity is an accredited group learning activity under Section 1 as defined by the Royal College of Physicians & Surgeons of Canada for the Maintenance of Certification program. It is approved by the Canadian Society of Endocrinology and Metabolism for a maximum of 0.5 credits.
