This innovative educational symposium is designed to advance interdisciplinary collaboration among clinicians who manage patients with cardio-renal-metabolic comorbidities. Using a combination of didactic lecture and simulation case challenges tailored to a primary audience of primary care physicians and a secondary audience of cardiologists, nephrologists, endocrinologists, hospitalists, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, pharmacists, and certified diabetes educators, this program aims to increase clinician knowledge of the application of SGLT2 inhibitors to the management of heart failure and chronic kidney disease as well as improve their ability to effectively communicate with all members of the multidisciplinary care team to optimize patient care.


  • Apply SGLT2 inhibitors to the management of heart failure and/or chronic kidney disease using relevant guidelines, clinical evidence, and FDA-approved indications
  • Develop and utilize strategies for timely diagnosis and/or prompt treatment initiation in patients diagnosed with chronic kidney disease (CKD)
  • Exhibit proficient collaboration and communication skills when working with endocrinologists, cardiologists, and nephrologists to employ a multidisciplinary care approach for patients with comorbidities involving the cardiovascular, renal, and metabolic systems


This educational activity is intended for primary audience of Primary Care Physicians, and a secondary audience of Cardiologists, Nephrologists, Endocrinologists, Hospitalists, Physician Assistants, Nurse Practitioners, Pharmacists, and Certified Diabetes Educators.
