Using Adaptive Learning Methodology, this program combines on-demand micro-learning sessions with immersive and interactive patient treatment plans to equip learners with the knowledge they need to make informed decisions about the use of GLP-1 RAs within the context of the T2D treatment continuum.

During this course, learners watch a series of micro-lessons on a number of topics related to the utilization of GLP-1 RAs in T2D treatment. Following the micro-lessons, learners participate in immersive activities in which they select and manage treatment plans for a variety of patients. Learners receive patient demographics, social determinants of health, and comorbid conditions, and are prompted to initiate and manage a treatment plan.
Healthcare professionals (HCPs), particularly endocrinologists, who specialize in the management and treatment of patients with type 2 diabetes.
Module 1:
• GLP-1 RA position in T2D treatment continuum
• Glycemic treatment effects

Module 2:
• Extra-glycemic treatment effects, including GLP-1 RA impacts on CV, liver and other organ systems
• Adverse treatment effects and contraindications

Module 3:
• Dosing considerations for diverse patients – Daily vs Weekly, Renal and Hepatic disease, diabetes alone or obesity?
• Shared decision making based on DEI considerations in the planning of T2D treatment plans

Module 4:
• GLP-1 RA mechanism of action
• Mode of administration – discuss oral vs SQ.
Upon completing this activity, learners should be able to:
  • Define, discuss, and differentiate currently available GLP-1 RAs for T2D treatment
  • Plan, implement, and monitor long-term treatment plans, inclusive of GLP-1 RA therapies for appropriate patients, for diverse presentations of T2D
  • Critically evaluate short- and long-term GLP-1 RA treatment outcomes for diverse patients with T2D
