This book is designed to provide the practicing GP with all the information needed to deal with diabetic and other endocrine problems in the community. As well as providing a scheme for assessment of patients with common endocrine conditions and explanation of common symptoms and signs, it covers all major clinical endocrine health topics. This book has taken the core text from the successful Oxford Handbook of General Practice and edited it together to cover the full breadth of diabetic and endocrine care in the community in one easy to access volume. In addition to the core text, this volume also contains a wealth of "extras" which make all the difference - such as helpful tips, self-help strategies for patients, patient experience information, frequently asked questions and links with quality payments available through the new GMS contract.
This book includes: useful links to further information for patients and GPs; expanded references to help students and GP registrars who need to be aware of the evidence base behind management decisions; flow charts to aid management; explanatory material and diagrams for GPs and nurses to use when explaining a particular condition to a patient; 'Patient experiences' information; FAQs which either take the form of question and answer boxes or 'hot tips boxes' or 'common mistakes boxes'; and each topic is linked to the requirements of the new GP Contract 'Quality and Outcomes Framework'.
