How Cardiovascular Outcome Trials are Changing Practice in Type 2 Diabetes
This session aims to discuss the available evidence from the CV Outcome trials so far, with a particular focus on the SGLT2i class, and to discuss the evidence we expect on the horizon. The session hopes to provoke thought around formulary decision making, guideline production and prescribing. We will look at the strengths and limitations of the Information we have. Given the potential financial pressures these medications are associated with, there is still much debate around their appropriate use. Can the NHS afford to use these medications? Can we afford not to use them?
This promotional session is organised and funded by Napp Pharmaceuticals Limited, where Napp’s products may be discussed.
