National and international guidelines for management of adult type 2 diabetes recognise the importance of individualised patient care that is respectful of and responsive to individual patient preferences and barriers such as comorbidities.1,2 Although not without challenges, taking a patient-centred approach has been shown to have a positive impact on patient outcomes.3

Join us for a live webcast on Tuesday 13 July at 12.30 and 19.00 hosted by Dr Sarah Jarvis, General Practitioner, London and Clinical Director at Patient.info and Paul Dromgoole, Clinical Lecturer in Diabetes and Diabetes Specialist Nurse (part-time), Lincolnshire. This webcast will discuss the challenges of optimising and individualising treatment and explore the potential role of the dipeptidyl peptidase-4 (DPP-4) inhibitor Trajenta (linagliptin) in the management of type 2 diabetes in adults. Tools which can be used during consultations to help empower patients will be introduced and finally, a hypothetical case study will be used to apply the considerations discussed to everyday clinical practice.
