This webcast programme is targeted at specialists (primarily endocrinologists and diabetologists) treating patients with diabetes in Asia, Europe, Brazil and Canada.

Following this webcast, you will be able to:

  • Demonstrate an increase in knowledge of the current and emerging landscape of GLP-1RAs in the context of pharmacodynamic profile, clinical use and current guidelines
  • Compare the efficacy and safety profiles of GLP-1RAs and SGLT2s
  • Implement this newly acquired knowledge in clinical decision making, selecting the right treatment at the right time for the right patient based on local healthcare settings
