Diabetes Ready Reference for Nurse Practitioners Clear, Concise Guidelines for Effective Patient Care Synopsis

The Diabetes Ready Reference for Nurse Practitioners is a handy reference for nurse practitioners and all health care professionals who are responsible for the diagnosis, treatment, and general care of patients with diabetes and the numerous chronic conditions associated with the disease. Based on the popular American Diabetes Association (ADA) reference book, The Diabetes Ready Reference for Health Professionals, ADA worked in partnership with the American Academy of Nurse Pratictioners to create a powerful and easy-to-use reference that provides on-the-spot answers and information for health care professionals who have many patients with diabetes and prediabetes and less time to devote to them. In an easy-to-use bullet list format the guidebook covers: Pathophysiology Diagnosis Admission Guidelines Monitoring Oral Medications Insulin Medication Effects Hypo-/Hyperglycemia Chronic Complications Illness Hospitalization and Surgery Self-Mangement Education Medical Nutriton Therapy Physical Activity Foot Care In addition, the guidebook has a glossary of important terms, and a bibliography. This critical, pertinent information--compiled by hospital-based diabetes care experts--is essential for physicians, nurses, or other health professionals who care for patients with diabetes. All proceeds are used to further the American Diabetes Association's mission to prevent and cure diabetes and improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes.
