Challenges in Cardiometabolic Care: Interprofessional Implementation of SGLT2 Inhibitors

Clinical trials and real-world analyses have consistently demonstrated the positive impact of SGLT2 inhibitors on cardiorenal outcomes in patients with type 2 diabetes (T2D), heart failure (HF), and chronic kidney disease (CKD). Based on these benefits, SGLT2 inhibitors have acquired a central role in the treatment of T2D, CKD, and HF. This educational activity will present the latest data from the landmark clinical trials examining the effects of SGLT2 inhibitors on cardiorenal outcomes, review updated clinical practice guidelines for heart failure, diabetes, and CKD, and describe care models that incorporate pharmacists into the initiation, titration, and monitoring of SGLT2 inhibitor therapy for patients who could benefit from treatment.
