“Strategies for Primary Care Physicians to Modify Cardiorenal Risk and Provide Optimal Management for Patients with Type 2 Diabetes and Chronic Kidney Disease

  2. Assess the latest clinical evidence for therapeutic agents for the management of CKD in patients with T2D that provide cardiorenal protective benefits
  3. Choose strategies for selecting the right patient to minimize cardiovascular risks and CKD progression


This activity is designed to meet the educational needs of primary care clinicians working with a multidisciplinary team of cardiologists, nephrologists, nurses, pharmacists, and other HCPs to ensure recognition of CKD risk in patients with T2D and novel strategies for modifying CKD risk and the risk of other chronic complications of T2D.
