Recent clinical guidelines show the increased cardiovascular risk associated with Type 2 diabetes, as well as the barriers to optimal care. There is a need for a guideline-directed, evidence-based and multidisciplinary care team approach in managing patients with Type 2 diabetes.
UNITE (Multidisciplinary Teams In Cardiometabolic Care) is a global program created to meet this need and support improvements in multidisciplinary care for this high-risk patient group with multiple comorbidities. Through this program, clinicians across multiple specialties will receive the tools and resources needed for an integrated approach to Type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular care.
This year UNITE will extend around the world, offering tools and education tailored to the unique needs of health care systems across countries and regions. The program will offer:
- Meet the Experts Webinars: Six educational cardiometabolic webinars.
- Care Team E-Learning: Cardiometabolic education modules for the cardiovascular care team.
- Clinic Operational Workflow: Live cardiometabolic clinic for clinicians.
The UNITE Global Program is supported by Novo Nordisk A/S. This program was developed in collaboration with the American Diabetes Association and MedAxiom, an ACC company.
