The goals of this program are to improve endocrinologists’ and other clinicians’ understanding and competence in leveraging the cardioprotective effects of SGLT2 inhibitors to reduce heart failure risk in patients with type 2 diabetes.
This activity is intended for endocrinologists, cardiologists, internists, primary care physicians, advanced practice providers, and other healthcare professionals who care for individuals with diabetes who are at risk for heart failure.

Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Identify the pathologic mechanisms by which diabetes can lead to the development of HF
  • Characterize HF outcomes from CVOTs of SGLT2 inhibitors in patients with T2D
  • Describe strategies to foster collaboration between endocrinologists and cardiologists to optimize care of patients with T2D and HF

The Endocrine Society is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians. Endocrine Society has achieved Accreditation with Commendation.
