93001 - Clinical Audit: Type 2 Diabetes and CV risk management

  • : Online

 

This clinical audit will allow you to review your current management of patients with type 2 diabetes at risk of cardiovascular disease, and compare it with best practice guidelines. 

It will update your knowledge on evidence of oral anti-diabetic agents to lower risk of CVD in these patients and provide information on the range of options available for treatment of T2DM and cardio-protection to ensure both conditions are appropriately managed 

Focus areas: Type 2 Diabetes, T2DM, CVD, CV risk, cardioprotection, diabetes, endocrinology, cardiology, clinical audit, cardiovascualr, disease,

Relevance to General Practice

Within 20 years, the number of people with type 2 diabetes is projected to increase from an estimated 870,000 in 2014, to more than 2.5 million. Diabetes approximately doubles the risk for a range of cardiovascular diseases independently of traditional risk factors. 

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of death in people with diabetes, with nearly 11,900 Australian deaths in 2005 of which CVD was involved in more than 50%: coronary heart disease (CHD) (48%), and stroke (16%). 

Improved management of cholesterol and blood pressure is clearly effective in reducing cardiovascular risk for people with type 2 diabetes. CVD risk assessment and subsequent management is therefore a vital part of diabetes care. 

This clinical audit will allow you to review your current management of patients with type 2 diabetes at risk of cardiovascular disease, and compare it with best practice guidelines. 

Learning outcomes
  • Identify current treatment targets for BP, lipids, weight, and HbA1c for T2DM patients with CVD according to latest guidelines
  • Update knowledge on evidence of oral anti-diabetic agents to lower risk of CVD in these patients
  • Demonstrate a knowledge of the range of options available for treatment of T2DM and cardio-protection to ensure both conditions are appropriately managed
  • Develop a systematic management plan for T2DM and CVD (or at risk of CV disease) patients to ensure patient safety
