Cardio-Diabetes Working Group
Publication of GHH Cardio-Diabetes Think Tank outputs in The World Heart Federation’s Global Heart Journal
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). Across the world, diabetes affects almost half a billion people, who have a twofold increased risk of 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.
Cardio-Diabetes Think Tank: Call To Action
The Global Heart Hub, in collaboration with leading representatives of key international CVD and Diabetes patient, nursing, primary and secondary care organisations, has developed this patient-led Call to Action to focus a spotlight on patient care for type 2 diabetes and CVD.
This Call to Action aims to galvanise the cardiovascular disease (CVD) and diabetes communities to advocate for increased attention and new strategies to address the critical interrelationship between these two conditions. It establishes specific tangible actions which are needed to elevate this issue across all stakeholders with the aim of improving care and patient outcomes.
Cardio-Diabetes Roundtable Report
Throughout the latter part of 2020, over 30 international patient organisations representing the heart and diabetes communities participated in a series of round-table discussions on the interface between diabetes and heart disease. The outputs from this collective engagement will result in a Cardio-Diabetes ‘Think Tank’ scheduled to take place in May 2022.
