About This Course

Individuals with type 2 diabetes (T2D) are at an increased risk for both cardiovascular disease (CVD) and chronic kidney disease (CKD) compared to those without T2D. CVD and CKD collectively contribute to over half of the deaths seen in patients with T2D. 1 Given this heightened risk, there is a crucial need to focus on both primary and secondary prevention strategies for both conditions. Attention to these factors is essential for mitigating the risk of ASCVD in individuals with T2D and CKD.

This comprehensive course addresses the management of comorbid diabetes with ASCVD (Atherosclerotic Cardiovascular Disease) and CKD, providing an in-depth understanding of their intricate interplay, mechanisms, and effective management strategies.

Additionally, the course offers insights into utilizing risk assessment tools and implementing strategies to identify individuals at heightened risk.

Moreover, through case studies, participants will analyze real-world scenarios, applying theoretical knowledge to practical situations. These case studies serve as invaluable learning opportunities, allowing for a deeper understanding of the complexities involved in managing comorbid diabetes, ASCVD, and CKD effectively.


Objectives of the module

At the completion of this module, the participant will be able to:
  • Understand the interplay between diabetes, ASCVD, and CKD, including their pathophysiological mechanisms and shared risk factors.
  • Learn effective strategies for assessing cardiovascular and renal risk in diabetic patients, including screening tools and risk stratification methods.
  • Explore lifestyle modifications and pharmacological interventions for glycemic control, ASCVD risk reduction, and management of CKD progression.
  • Gain knowledge of special considerations and management approaches for specific populations such as older adults and geriatric patients with comorbid diabetes, ASCVD, and CKD.

Need for the course

  • Addressing the rising prevalence of diabetes and its associated complications, including ASCVD and CKD.
  • Improving HCP’s understanding of the complex interplay between diabetes, ASCVD, and CKD to enhance patient care.
  • Filling the gap in comprehensive education on effective management strategies for comorbid conditions, considering their significant impact on patient outcomes.
  • Providing healthcare providers with up-to-date knowledge and skills to optimize management and reduce the burden of diabetes-related complications.
