Optimizing Rybelsus Discussions:  The Role of the Pharmacist in T2D Treatment
October 5, 2021, 6:30 pm - 7:30 PM (CT)
Free virtual event provided by Novo Nordisk. Space is limited. Please RSVP at least 3 days prior to the event to confirm your reservation.
 
Curtis Triplitt, PharmD, from the Texas Diabetes Institute will discuss the challenges faced in managing the growing population of patients with T2D and the critical role of the pharmacist in the management of T2D. He will evaluate head-to-head data for Rybelsus (semaglutide) tablets 7 mg or 14 mg from pivotal glycemic control PIONEER trials (including vs Januvia and vs Jardiance) and safety data from the Rybelsus cardiovascular outcomes trial, PIONEER 6. Dr. Triplitt will also examine results from pharmacokinetics and drug interaction studies that support details of dosing and administration of once-daily Rybelsus for the treatment of adults with T2D to improve glycemic control.

  Do you have issues about your pharmacy workplace, but you don’t feel like you can voice your concerns? The APhA and  NASPA have developed a landmark national state-based pharmacy workplace survey. Your responses will provide aggregated data needed to learn how state laws and regulations, along with pharmacy policies and procedures, may be adding stressors to the work life of pharmacy personnel that may lead to patient safety issues. We’ve heard that pharmacists are reluctant to discuss workplace issues for fear of retaliation from their employers. This survey is 100% anonymous.  Your individual survey response will be included in a nationwide database that will be held centrally and confidentially. Just 10 minutes is all it takes to complete the Pharmacy Workplace Survey. Don’t just wish you were heard - actually be heard!
