With the growing incidence of the disease, all nurses, whatever their clinical area, will encounter people with diabetes. Best practice involves understanding the issues and complexities surrounding diabetes care. The Oxford Handbook of Diabetes Nursing is unique in helping nurses and other health professionals to better care for patients with diabetes. Assembling the evidence, information and guidance on caring for adults with diabetes into one slim volume, it increases the knowledge, skills, competence and confidence of nurses to meet the demands of the government and patient agendas, improving the lives of people with diabetes. As the number of people diagnosed with diabetes increases, there is a shift from routinely reviewing their clinical and psychological status in specialist secondary care clinics to more accessible primary care facilities. The Oxford Handbook of Diabetes Nursing is an essential tool for practice nurses with a special interest in diabetes who have begun to deliver this ongoing care and assessment. It is also a valuable resource and aide memoire for community nurses and those working in acute settings. The book is organised in a systematic way, providing advice and guidance on the complex patient centred, physiological, psychological and psychosocial challenges involved in diabetes care. Links, references and suggestions for additional reading are provided for each topic. Presenting a comprehensive overview, the Oxford Handbook of Diabetes Nursing is a useful companion for all those caring for and supporting people with diabetes.show more
