Simple and safe prescribing of HRT for primary care

The menopause is a natural process that occurs in all women and menopausal women have an increased risk of heart disease, osteoporosis, type 2 diabetes, osteoarthritis and dementia.But they are still not being offered HRT despite evidence to support that the benefits outweigh the risks in the majority of women. Clinical cases will be discussed to demonstrate the simplicity of safe and effective HRT prescribing in primary care, dispel myths and give practical tips.

Making my appraisal something I look forward to (because of its value to me and my patients)

We all want to be the best doctors we can be, and annual appraisal is one mechanism that should be supporting all doctors in achieving this because it reaches everyone.

13.00 - 13.45 Sponsored Symposium: “When is the right time to start GLP1-RA treatment in people living with type 2 diabetes”

Session Information

“When is the right time to start GLP1-RA treatment in people living with type 2 diabetes” (Sponsored by Novo Nordisk)

Many people living with type 2 diabetes are escalated from oral therapies to basal insulin. Approximately 87% of patients starting on basal insulin skipped the GLP-1 RA* class altogether 1 without trying a GLP-1 RA class first. GLP-1 RA therapies offer glycaemic control, have a lower risk of hypoglycaemia and are associated with reductions in body weight compared with weight gain with insulin, with the added benefit of some GLP-1 RAs allowing for once weekly injections, as opposed to daily for insulin. 2,3. Based on these considerations,  international guidelines suggest to consider a GLP-1 RA before trying basal insulin for patients with type 2 diabetes who are not meeting desired targets with oral therapies. 4,5 In this symposium we shall explore the: 

  • extent of the burden of T2D on the NHS
  • latest evidence-based recommendations in managing T2D
  • the role of GLP-1 RA therapy in the multi-modal treatment of T2D
  • considerations when choosing GLP-1 RA or basal insulin
