Theory in Practice (TIPs) videos are a new series of interviews in which Dr Kevin Fernando consults healthcare professionals about topical issues in primary care, asking two questions and agreeing two key take-home messages.

Key: GPwSI=GP with a special interest; SGLT-2=sodium–glucose co-transporter-2; GLP-1=glucagon-like peptide-1; ADA=American Diabetes Association; EASD=European Association for the Study of Diabetes; SU=sulfonylurea; DPP-4=dipeptidyl peptidase-4; DKA=diabetic ketoacidosis

In this TIPs video, Dr Kevin Fernando interviews Dr Pam Brown about the updated NICE Guideline 28 on the management of type 2 diabetes, asking two questions:

  • How can the practice-changing recommendations of NICE Guideline 28 around early combination therapy be implemented?
  • Where should GLP-1 receptor agonists sit in current treatment paradigms?
This video was recorded in Autumn 2022.
