Practical Diabetes Care for Healthcare Professionals, Second Edition targets all health care professionals involved in type 2 diabetes care. Caring for these patients involves the management of a chronic, lifelong disease. It is multifaceted, affecting a person's daily life, family, and workplace. Beyond the usual health impact, diabetes may also carry a significant psychological burden. Successful care means whole [person] care which can be daunting for an individual health care provider. The complete assessment of people with diabetes must include a review of diabetes medications, blood glucose levels, nutritional intake, physical activity, and stress. Also important is a review of possible micro- and macrovascular complications. All of these components play a role in successful diabetes management. This practical guide translates research and evidence-based recommendations into everyday clinical practice, with the goal of helping all members of the health care team more effectively manage their diabetic patients. Detailed, real-life case scenarios included to illustrate the principles outlined in each chapter Separate chapters for specific diabetes-related complications Chapter devoted to the concept of the Diabetes Health Care Team and its impact on diabetes care Expanded chapter on the importance of lifestyle approaches, including a key discussion about the emotional aspects of managing a long-term chronic disease Provides a comprehensive, yet succinct review of diabetes that will include details on medication choice, dosages and adjustments, along with a chapter describing technological advances

Integrating care across disciplines and organisations around the needs of the person with diabetes has been proposed as an approach that could improve care while reducing cost- but has it and can it? Integrated Diabetes Care- A Multidisciplinary Approach collates evidence of worldwide approaches to both horizontal integration (across disciplines) and vertical integration (across organizations) in diabetes care and describe what was done, what worked and what appeared to be the barriers to achieving the goals of the programmes. Evidence is sought from groups who have developed different approaches to integrating diabetes care in different health systems (eg insurance vs tax payer funded, single vs multiple organization, published vs unpublished). A final chapter brings the evidence together for a final discussion about what seems to work and what does not.

This title is directed primarily towards health care professionals outside of the United States. In the 21st Century, the management of type 2 diabetes has become even more important both in the primary health care setting and in the UK government's health policy. With the publication of the National Service Framework and the allied National Clinical Guidelines, both patients and the government expect practices to deliver appropriate and effective care to a high standard. This handbook addresses many concepts important in the day-to-day management of these patients. In addition to the discussion of specific medical management of type 2 diabetes (including the improvement of cardiovascular risk factors), the book explores the use of self-management techniques, the consultation process, and the use of psychological techniques to influence health-related behavior. All aspects of the text are linked, when appropriate, to the GMS contract. The authors include a full time GP delivering diabetic care and an eminent Consultant/academic at the leading edge of diabetes research The text is completely up-to-date with numerous current references, incorporating the latest guidance The span of the text is comprehensive, including clinical, organisational and psycho-social topics of importance in delivering high-quality diabetes care The text is cross-referenced to the relevant QOF indicators and NSF standards This book also covers the relevant aspects of diabetes in Curriculum Statement 15.6 prepared by the Royal College of General Practitioners, which forms the basis of the new membership examination and the competencies expected of General Practitioners. The management options include extensive balanced discussions about not just drugs, but also health education and appropriate referrals to specialists The approach is neither didactic nor promotional, and aims to provide sufficient practical information to help clinicians make optimal decisions that take full account of the latest authoritative guidance, but which can be tailored rationally to the individual patient's needs Many of the concepts covered - including reduction of cardiovascular risk, health education, audit and lifestyle - are extremely relevant to non-diabetes care The appendices include a detailed drug formulary and the relevant 2006-2008 QOF clinical indicators. Future trends and further reading are clearly set out, ensuring that the book will remain useful for the next few years.
