In 2022, The Global Heart Hub held a Cardio-Diabetes Think Tank to develop consensus on actions that need to be taken to address the growing burden of diabetes and cardiovascular disease (CVD).

We are delighted to communicate that the findings from the think tank have now been published in The World Heart Federation’s Global Heart Journal.
The patient-led think tank brought together leading representatives of key international CVD and diabetes patient, nursing, primary and secondary care organisations, to produce a consensus report outlining specific, tangible actions needed to improve care for patients with these concomitant diseases. It calls for key players in both communities to work together to implement these actions, putting patients at the centre of decision-making to enhance cardio-diabetes outcomes.
