The management of type 2 diabetes continues to evolve with new treatment options to improve glycemic control and dramatically reduce the risk of diabetic complications. With the amount of trials and pharmacotherapy options increasing so rapidly, it can be difficult for primary care clinicians to keep up-to-date with the latest treatment options.

This interactive webinar series has assembled a panel of diabetes experts to discuss new and emerging treatment options and their impact on individualized care. The panel will share their insights on how to overcome challenges with patient care and provide you with practical tips for selecting the most appropriate choice of antihyperglycemic therapy for your patients.

Key topics for discussion

  • Key factors when considering individualized treatment of antihyperglycemic therapy
  • Differences between SGLT2 inhibitors and GLP-1 receptor agonists and the recent research
