CMHC Masterclass On Demand: Connecting the Dots in Cardiometabolic Medicine - Integrative Approaches to Improve Patient Care
Utilizing thought-provoking and interactive discussions, multidisciplinary experts in this masterclass cover advances in lifestyle, nutrition, genetics, and pharmacotherapy to prevent and address obesity, cardiovascular disease, hypertension, dyslipidemia, type 2 diabetes, kidney disease and more. Each section will include expert panel discussions, which will aim to provide practical approaches to patient management and interpret the latest advances to patient care.

- Discuss the interrelationships among cardiometabolic risk factors and their impact on the development of cardiometabolic diseases, including diabetes, dyslipidemia, hypertension, obesity, kidney disease, and cardiovascular disease.
- Review the latest evidence and guidelines for the prevention, screening, and treatment of the complex patient with cardiometabolic risk or cardiometabolic disease.
- Outline strategies aimed at timely screening and prevention of cardiometabolic disease.
- Summarize recent evidence for emerging therapies in order to stay current with the most recent updates in the cardiometabolic field.
- Select comprehensive treatment regimens for patients with cardiometabolic disease that utilize both lifestyle interventions and pharmacotherapy to improve outcomes.
- Recognize obesity as a disease and the importance of long-term weight loss as an important therapeutic target in patients with type 2 diabetes and obesity.
- Select antiglycemic therapies with a favorable profile on weight and weight management in patients with obesity and type 2 diabetes when appropriate.
- Review the efficacy and safety of current, new, and emerging therapies for long-term weight management in patients with type 2 diabetes and obesity.
