Joslin's Diabetes Deskbook - A Guide for Primary Care Providers, Third Edition

Joslin Diabetes Center is pleased to introduce the Third 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, Joslin has produced Joslin's Diabetes Deskbook to offer its expertise and guidance in this effort. This Third Edition is completely revised to provide evidence-based information about diabetes and its complications along with the most up-to-date approaches to the diagnosis, management and treatment of the disease

Every chapter of the Deskbook has been updated for the Third Edition – including:

In addition, there are new chapters that address the treatment of diabetes in the context of a busy primary care practice and  new technologies for insulin delivery.

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; 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 effectively engage in diabetes self- management.
