Upon completion of this educational activity, participants should be able to:
- Understand the scientific and clinical research dimensions of ongoing investigations that are assessing antithrombotic, lipid-based, and novel, emerging strategies aimed at improving short- and long-term outcomes in ACS patients who also have T2D.
- Discuss the rationale and potential clinical impact of therapeutic strategies based on new mechanisms of action, involving lipid management, glycemic control, and dual peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-alpha/gamma (PPAR) modulation.
- Implement vasculopathy-mitigating therapies in diabetic patients that work through modification of comprehensive, cardiometabolic risk factor-based management and modulation.
- Implement strategies in the intra-hospital and post-hospital phase of acute coronary syndrome (ACS) that address atheroinflammatory processes—plaque development, instability, and rupture—and that make an impact on the vaculopathic cascade leading to ACS in the setting of diabetes.
- Apply evidence-based and guideline-supported strategies that are effective for residual CV risk reduction and secondary prevention of adverse thromboembolic events in the setting of diabetes after acute coronary syndrome (ACS).
