Learning objectives

This educational symposium will allow the audience to:

  • Understand the pathophysiological connections between cardiovascular disease and kidney disease
  • Understand how SGLT2 inhibition modifies cardiovascular and kidney function to affect patient outcomes
  • Identify individuals at risk of incident and progressive cardiorenal disease and utilise SGLT2 inhibitors appropriately for prevention and treatment of the associated conditions
  • Explain how recent guideline updates position SGLT2 inhibitors within the treatment regimen for patients with, or at risk of, cardiorenal disease
