Sodium–Glucose Co-transporter 2 Inhibitors in Heart Failure
  • 1.00 EBAC

Learning objectives

  • Understand the SGLT2 inhibitor cardiovascular outcome trial (CVOT) data.
  • Differentiate the latest guideline updates for the treatment of T2D and their recommendations regarding the importance of considering comorbidities, including atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) and heart failure (HF).
  • Apply clinical and real-world evidence of the SGLT2 inhibitor class for use in prevention of hospitalisation in HF, as well as future ongoing studies in the treatment of HF.
  • Assess the interrelationships linking diabetes, HF and CVD.
  • Interpret the potential cardio-renal mechanisms of the SGLT2 inhibitor class in reducing the risk of CV, including HF.
  • Evaluate emerging data of the treatment of HF with SGLT2 inhibitors in patients with or without T2DM.
