Type 2 diabetes: New treatment on the horizon

WEBINAR: Tuesday, 1 December 2020. 7.30 - 8.45 pm

Diabetes is one of the largest and fastest-growing health issues we face. It is estimated that over 250,000 people in New Zealand have been diagnosed with diabetes (mostly type 2 diabetes) and this expected to rise. Diabetes is linked with cardiovascular and renal disease and collectively are responsible for a significant proportion of deaths. Many of these deaths are preventable. 

There is a PHARMAC proposal to fund new diabetic medications in the near future for the treatment of people with type 2 diabetes at high risk of heart and kidney complications.  The effects of these new treatments are thought to provide benefits beyond diabetes control. 

This webinar will provide a New Zealand centric context for best practice in diabetes management inclusive of new therapies to optimise patient health.

Questions are welcomed. Please note that the webinar may run slightly over time so as many of your questions as possible can be answered.
