Joslin's Diabetes Deskbook - A Guide for Primary Care Providers, 2nd Edition - Newly Updated

Joslin Diabetes Center is pleased to introduce the NEWLY UPDATED 2ND Edition of Joslin's Diabetes Deskbook – A Guide for Primary Care Providers. Primary care practitioners, nurse practitioners, RNs, RDs and other healthcare professionals are increasingly called upon to treat, work with or advise the growing numbers of people with diabetes. Recognizing that these primary care professionals are on the frontline of diabetes treatment, the world-renowned Joslin Diabetes Center produced Joslin's Diabetes Deskbook to offer its expertise and guidance in this effort.

The Deskbook is a comprehensive resource that that offers the most up-to-date approaches to the diagnosis, management and treatment of patients with diabetes.

Since the 2nd Edition of the Deskbook was first published, there have been many changes in diabetes care and treatment.  In response to these changes, Joslin has once again updated the Deskbook

Every chapter of the Deskbook has been updated for the Updated 2nd Edition – including:

Topics of value to primary care providers included in the Deskbook are: diagnosis; oral medications and their use singly or in combination; designing insulin treatment programs, including programs involving intensive physiologic insulin replacement by injections and insulin pump therapy; the role of medical nutritional therapy and exercise; risk reduction and treatment of microvascular and macrovascular complications; dealing with gender-specific issues; and educating diabetes patients so they can participate in the management of their condition.
